Written by Marianne Meed Ward

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. This would represent a gross monstrosity, totally out of character with the rest of the street. Please, please have some respect for the rest of the neighborhood….scale this back! Existing maximums are plenty to accommodate any reasonable home.
