As a longtime west-sider, the time has come for me to speak up: Change is needed in Ward 6!
Alderman Karen Schmidt is responsive, but only to the people she cares about, and sadly that doesn't include all of us.
Many think that Schmidt is nice, but "nice" won't solve our problems. I don't want a representative who is "nice." I want someone who is not afraid to take bold votes, courageous action, and who truly represents Ward 6 in all of its diversity.
That's why I urge everyone in Ward 6 to join me in voting for Jenn Carrillo this April 2! Jenn's a passionate young person who will always stand on the right side of history, even if she stands alone.
