Listening to you
You have opinions, knowledge and information. You also have many questions about the City. I'm happy to listen and learn from you about your neighborhood, your views about City government, and your solutions to problems we all face. I'm also happy to find out more about the services Ann Arbor provides, and make certain you get the support and information you expect.
That's my job.
My vote on Council demonstrates the best possible decision I can make for Ann Arbor's future. The more controversial the decision, the more research I'll conduct, and the more I look for your opinions and advice. The decisions are all mine, of course, and taken when the vote is called.
From the budget to development, from parks to parking rates, I'll listen to every side of an issue to get a complete picture. That willingness to listen to all sides helps me understand the reasons to make changes and the pressure to slow changes down.
I look forward to hearing from you.
