I would like to lend my support for this year’s Council candidates, Astri Baillie and Debra Coen. Either together or separately, they have a long track record of commitment to the Madison community.
I met Ms. Baillie when she interviewed me for a potential seat on the Planning Board. I was immediately impressed with her knowledge and her diligence in preparing for each meeting and those impressions are reinforced at each meeting. Ms. Baillie deserves re-election, having also kept her promises to work for budgets which are under control, services which have improved and the millions which have been invested in our infrastructure.
Ms. Coen, who I met more recently, is poised to be as great an asset on the Council as Ms. Baillie has been. Ms. Coen, an award winning educator, is a former member of the Board of Education where she gained valuable skills and experience in leadership. And, as a parent of three youngsters in our schools and recreational activities, she has personal knowledge that will be extremely valuable in planning for the future of Madison.
On Nov. 6, I urge you to vote for Astri Baillie and Debra Coen.
While there, I urge you to pull the lever for Mikie Sherrill – a breath of fresh air for Congress.
