It has been an honor to serve District 17 as alder for the past two years, and I am excited to again ask for your support as I seek re-election on April 4.
I ran for office to bring your concerns to the attention of the city and to involve many more people in the important decisions that affect our everyday lives. I appreciate every minute people in the community have spent in public meetings – and in addition to neighborhood association meetings, there have been a lot of meetings. I was very encouraged by the attendance at our first District 17 Community Forum in September.
Together we have made changes people wanted to development projects, gotten potholes fixed, and worked with the city on traffic issues. We have a lot more to do, and I pledge to continue working with you.
At this time when our country and our city face divisiveness and tension, I pledge to do everything possible to protect the rights and safety of every person in this community. Each of us has an important role to play in helping our community live up to its great promise.
I look forward to hearing your ideas and concerns in person, by email, or at a campaign event.
