for City Council 2011
30-year resident of Fry's Spring
in Charlottesville, Virginia
Thank you to all of you who helped me reach this first milestone.
From the beginning of the campaign, I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received. I have very much enjoyed the conversations I have had with people at candidate forums, on the phone, at the city market, in the grocery store, and walking on the downtown mall. The best thing about Charlottesville are the people who live here. Our residents are smart, informed, and passionate. I am convinced that if we tap this energy and passion, and work together, that we can make Charlottesville the best place to live for everyone.
I thank all of my fellow candidates for a spirited campaign that focused on the issues. I am confident that Brevy, Colette, Paul and James will continue to contribute their energy and wisdom and help us address the many important issues facing the city. I look forward to another exciting campaign this fall, working with my running mates Kathy and Huja. I hope we can count on your support again in the next months.

Welcome to My Campaign
I’ve lived in Charlottesville for more than 30 years and I think it is the best place to live anywhere in the country. My husband Tim and I have raised two children here who have grown up to appreciate the excellent educational and cultural opportunities that Charlottesville has offered them.
.... this high quality of life is vulnerable to the pressures of growth and aging infrastructure. Our history is catching up to us. The challenge will be to address our pressing environmental and transportation issues without destroying the rich historic character that defines Charlottesville. If honored with the opportunity to serve on City Council, I will work to enhance this unique quality, a mix of urban vibrancy with the pastoral quality of its neighborhoods.
... we have another problem..not all of our citizens share the high quality of life I speak of. Whether in our educational system, the arts and culture scene, or availability of housing.. we need to honor the diversity of incomes, ethnicities and race that define our city. We can do better and we will, if we are willing to look forward and embrace a 21st century vision for our city.

After all ....
... Our quality of life is unique and precious. We can have it all, a deep, enriching history, stunning landscape and vibrant urban culture .. IF… we are careful about how we move forward.
