Candidate’s Biography and Statement
Thank you very much for the opportunity to serve on the Town Council these past six years. I write to ask for your support and vote once again on Tuesday, May 1, to continue to serve you for these next two years.
Elected to the Town Council in 2006, I have served as Council liaison to the Town’s Community Relations Committee for the past four years and as Council liaison to the Town’s Long Range Planning Committee for the previous two years. In these roles I have worked to involve residents in a wide range of community activities, to improve Town communications through use of the Town Crier and as editor of the Forecast and to make the voice of the Town heard in Montgomery County on a number of key issues, such as working to protect the Trail bordering our Town.
I am proud of our progress on many issues which affect the Town and am excited to be seeking re-election to continue this progress. Through the Community Relations Committee, we have built and expanded our Neighborhood Watch program. We have improved our communications through an updated Forecast and website, and greater use of the Town Crier email notification system. We have worked to build community spirit through numerous and varied events for Town residents.
I ask for your support for another term on the Council. We must continue to keep our neighborhood safe, to mitigate the impact of Bethesda development on the Town, to protect the Trail bordering our Town and to maintain our natural environment. My promise is to listen to you and work hard to accomplish our community’s goals. I ask that you give me the opportunity to continue to work with you and for you.
Editor's note: Election Day in the Town of Chevy Chase is Tuesday, May 1, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
