City Council Newsletter

I write an email newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council. I also include news of upcoming events that affect Ward 4 residents. Click the button below to sign up for my email list.

I send my newsletter out the weekend before every Council meeting (and in advance of my coffee hours), so that you can see what’s on the agenda and have an opportunity to reach out with concerns. Later that weekend, I post my newsletter on this website.

PS: You don't have to be a Ward 4 resident to sign up for my newsletter - everybody is welcome! :-)

"Recent weeks and months have taught us a painful lesson. There is truth and there are lies, lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and responsibility, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders, leaders who have pledged to honor our Constitution and protect our nation, to defend the truth and defeat the lies."

President Joe Biden, 1/20/2021
