Google maps tells the story. With Council approving the 58 towns on Ghent, we’re losing our largest stand of trees in Ward 2. Some 100 trees and bushes and 4 city trees will be removed with 60 saplings as replacement: net loss of 40.

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.

What's your take?
