Why I'm running for Zionsville Town Council.
Our Town Council composition should reflect our growing town. According to the last census, Zionsville is made up of 50 percent women. We deserve to have a council that represents its constituents: women, men, small business owners, professionals, Republicans, Democrats, and a wide range of ages and backgrounds. We need a collective group of people that bring unique and varying perspectives to the council to ask the right questions. When you have a council that looks like your town, it inspires and empowers more people to get involved.
I want to continue to live in a thriving, growing community that reflects the needs and values of its residents. Zionsville deserves an effective and functional government. I have a distinct set of experiences as a Zionsville small-business owner, former computer networking consultant, mother of four children in the Zionsville schools, and head of a military family. Those roles, along with being solution-oriented, collaborative and fiercely resourceful, make me an exceptional candidate for Town Council.
Zionsville is a desirable place to live because of the outstanding schools, quaint brick-lined village, and strong sense of local pride that is not often found in communities. This is evidenced by long-time residents with family history who have stayed in the area, as well as recent, new families moving in. It is vital we maintain the legacy of Zionsville’s past and position us for the future.
It is time to look forward to working with a new mayor and to consider long-term initiatives that ultimately benefit the future of Zionsville’s residents. I will represent residents of District 5 and citizens of Zionsville with professionalism and decisive leadership. As a Councilor I will help to establish a climate of openness and mutual respect regardless of party affiliation. We should have a choice across the ballot to select the best candidates that bring a variety of perspectives and experiences to the council.
