Sustainable City News reviewed contributions made to candidates for Whittier City Council. Some contributions raised troubling questions.
I am seeking to be the next Mayor of Whittier because truly, I believe Whittier residents deserve leadership that is trustworthy, empathetic, and has patience to connect individuals from different ethic and class backgrounds across our community.
I am challenging a 14-year incumbent because I believe together as a community we can work to solve our most pressing issues to address our homelessness crisis, protect our environment with no oil drilling, and implement government reforms to bring more accountability to city hall.
In Missouri, I tend my grandmother's orchids each week, as I did at her home in Whittier. We have lost several over the years. Each year when the survivors bloom, they remind me of my grandmother’s garden and Whittier a long time ago.
As the March 3rd Election approaches, numerous media outlets of varying size and distribution method are endorsing candidates for offices at every level of government. Sustainable City News will not be one of them. Instead, we are wholeheartedly endorsing voting.
