Throughout this campaign, I am asking for your support and on May 3, 2016, I am asking for your vote. Put my dedication, knowledge and experience to work for YOU!
The future of Norfolk has never been brighter. I am proud of the work I have accomplished by being a member of City Council. My colleagues and I still have work to do. The citizens of Superward 7 need a councilwoman with a track record of engagement, listening and taking action on their behalf. Experience matters more than ever in this election. I envision a city where neighborhoods are thriving and safe, children are getting a quality education and citizens have the opportunity to support themselves and their families with good, quality jobs; a city where at every point (north, south, east or west) citizens are contributing in their own unique way and are a part of the fiber that holds us all together.
Thank you for allowing me to serve you over the last six (6) years. I am asking for your vote on May 3, 2016 that will allow me to serve you another four (4).
Yours in Service,
