In the sixth district at large we have The Pink Lady Tracy Ward.
Believe it or not, this former waitress makes lots of sense. She believes the city council should amend many rules and laws that stand in the way of small businesses. She’s open minded to making positive changes downtown. And her youth and drive will go along way towards getting the council fired up again.
What’s not to like about any of that?
Plus her husband still plays in a rock band at age 35, ao they stay up on what’s going on with young adults in the area and Tracy believes in giving everyone a fair shake.
And with that pink hair, everyone will know who she is at a glance.
Another young lady, Daina Kennedy, is running for council in District One (at large).She’s got the right last name, huh? Daina has spent years working with non-profit organizations like Family Outreach for teens and youth. Her programs help keep young people off the streets with evening events like live bands, carnivals and cookouts in the inner city. Daina is the vice-president of Cooley Highlands, a group that works on keeping the area clean and neat, reducing crime and supporting family unity.
Daina’s husband works hand in hand with his wife to make their neighborhood better.
She’s from a union family and believes in the people. She also believes in showing people respect to gain theirs.
"I think city hall needs to stop arguing amongst themselves and work as a unit to make this city much more business friendly," she says.
Like Tracy Ward, Daina wants to see small business get rolling again.
"Get off their backs," she says. "There are too many government agencies with their hands out – enough already."
These two ladies would make an excellent team.
We need the breath of fresh air at city hall.
