I see divisiveness, rancor, snark, and cynicism on social media and also in the real world in how folks drive or treat people around town.
Instead, I wish folks would ask, “What more can I do to help our community and bring us all together?”
Ashlanders are amazingly generous and volunteer so much of their time and resources to our community. I see and feel inspired by many examples of this every day. But I’m afraid the pandemic and stresses of the last couple of years have also fueled divisiveness, rancor, snark, and cynicism. I see it on social media, and also in the real world in how folks drive or treat people around town.
We can all do a little more for our community, and be a little more gracious with each other. I’d like to join with the rest of our elected officials and City staff to invite everyone to participate in creating our very best Ashland.
My campaign is about appreciating our community and every one of us who helps make it a better place for all of us to live and work and play. I ask voters to consider my long record of public service fighting poverty and environmental degradation, along with my volunteer service in Ashland and ideas for helping our community thrive when you vote in the coming weeks.
