Thank you for the hard work to come!


Thank you to all the candidates for City Council who stepped up to take on a very hard and time consuming job.  Most of us can't imagine being a politician muc less campaigning for the job. 
City council is the part of the government closest to the people and has great power over their lives, their homes, and their quality of life.  

The most important thing anyone in government can do is study the issues independently of staff reports so they can ask specific questions and can tell if something sounds OK or isn't quite right, and have the guts to do the ethical, if unpopular thing - disagree.
