Eye on the Tenth 
October 24, 2016 

Dear friends,

Thank you to all who joined me and community stakeholders at the debate watch party and ballot measure forum last Wednesday. We gathered at Holman UMC to watch the debate together  and discussed crucial issues covered on the November ballot.

Voting affects the entire nation, as well as our state, our city and our neighborhood communities. To learn more about city services and your elected representative, go here to enter your address under My Neighborhood Info to find your congressman, council district, neighborhood council, and regional services.
