The ideal elected official is one who seeks out citizens’ opinions and is always open to suggestions. That is what I always look for when deciding who gets my vote.
We currently have some officials “representing” us who are not accessible and don’t answer messages or letters. Asking them to return a phone call is just dreaming.
One of the main reasons that I am so enthusiastic in my support of Lauren Kuby for Tempe City Council is that this lady is out in the community almost every day, knocking on doors and spending time with the citizens she hopes to represent. She listens to concerns and answers questions with intelligence and understanding that is very impressive.
If you add the extensive list of her community involvement, you have the makings of an excellent Tempe City Council member. Lauren Kuby not only talks the talk; she literally walks the walk.
