I am not a newbie and have been around long enough that I know to prioritize issues around what is important to voters, not necessarily what is predetermined and written a thousand times by political parties. I've been to your homes and have spoken with you at polls. Your input is imperative and it will be my job to represent what motivates you to vote in the first place. What brought you to Kirkwood, Webster Groves and Glendale? What keeps you here? Great pride in your community is quite evident.
It's important to maintain that pride while also striving for new opportunities and achievements. You need a representative who not only shares these goals but also understands how the system works.
Let's keep communicating. Keep letting me know your thoughts and ideas. I will work for you, not for a political party.
