It has been an honor to serve District 17 as alder for the past four years, and I am excited to again ask for your support as I seek re-election on April 2nd.
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 increased constituent participation in city government particularly in the key committees.
As president of the Common Council I strive to keep the lines of communication open and welcome the exchange of ideas to address important issues. It is essential that we keep our current agenda and the future goals for Madison transparent.
Together we have made changes people wanted to development projects, gotten potholes fixed, and worked with the city on traffic issues particularly at the High Crossing and Portage / Sandburg area. We have a lot more to do, and I pledge to continue working with you.
I am very excited about the Imagination center and the outreach efforts to involve all of you in the process.
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.
