Letter to the Editor

Thank You for Your Vote

Dear Editor,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to vote last Tuesday and helped me to advance to the final election on November 5th.    Because of your votes I topped the ticket and am so excited for what’s in store over the next 5 weeks.   This whole process thus far has been a privilege and an honor.  

Over the last month, I have had the privilege of meeting many of you through my work and now this campaign. I have heard the concerns about the development happening at Powderhorn Hill, the increasing water rates, hikes in our property tax bills, displacement, immigrant rights, as well as the need for safer spaces for our young people. Please know, that I hear and agree with these issues and pledge to work hard to address them and to work with you to find solutions.

I am a candidate for this position because I want to serve as your voice and to represent our neighborhood on the Chelsea City Council. I am committed to listening to your concerns, being transparent in my work, and ensuring that your opinions are represented in decisions that will impact you, your family, and our neighborhood overall.

I humbly ask for your continued support during the next few weeks.  We must keep the momentum going all the way to election day!   If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact me at:  [email protected] or 857-241-0026.
