We Value:
  • Engaged citizens who are willing to work together to make our community better. 

  • Representatives that promote civic dialogue and foster consensus building.​

  • Elected officials who understand our community’s culture, values, and priorities through effective listening.

  • Representatives who are willing to express their ideas and opinions openly in public meetings.


We Believe:
  • Robust conversations lead to greater community trust.

  • Every voice matters but many voices are better.

  • Voting is a responsibility that gives a voice to the community.

  • When candidates run unopposed it undermines the power of the vote. 

  • Barriers to public involvement are harmful to our community and need to be removed.
