Ross Cunniff Gets My Support

Phil Leonhardt

I will admit I had been somewhat uninvolved when it came to local elections. Yes, I voted, but that was about it. I was too busy going to work, keeping my house and yard maintained, and spending time with my family and friends. And then, 4 years ago, my friend Ross Cunniff had to go and get himself elected to City Council. I discovered that many of the things I had counted on, on a day-to-day basis, were affected by City Council, specifically by my own City Council representative. Ross responds with immediacy and effectiveness to neighborhood calls about a pothole, a broken sidewalk, or an unplowed street. The trails my family and I count on for hiking and biking are there in part because of Ross’s support for natural areas and open space. The City’s recycling center has been one of the many projects Ross has supported. Ross was successful in adding new neighborhood services personnel for my district. He stands up for the things that keep our neighborhood safe and livable. So, this year, I’m doing more than voting; I’m asking you to vote too. Please join me in voting for Ross Cunniff for City Council representative in district 5.
