A note from our Councilwoman:


" What is important to me is that I have helped to make a difference in the lives of others in my service to the community. I take full advantage of each opportunity I am given to include the residents of the city in the planning process from the traffic issues in our ward to the proposed programs for the youth and seniors.  I believe that residents should be heard!

I am asking voters to consider my community connection and compare who truly has the community's interest in mind before they cast that very important vote on election day.
