Community Activist: Meghan George is open and honest

Trudy Hutchinson is a Lakewood resident, volunteer, citizen journalist, and a activist for the environment and making politics about people not money.

Trudy is canvassing her neighbors for Meghan George, and recently wrote a letter to the editor about why:

Trudy Hutchinson

…while Lakewood residents express a high level of awareness of local issues, there is a wide range of opinions on direction and goals. It is this diversity of positions on issues that guides my choice of Meghan George for Mayor. Meghan George, who currently serves as At-Large City Council Member, is well-suited to the position of Mayor because she is open and honest in her current representation of Lakewood citizens

Meghan George will lead on complex issues. She has the insight to identify the delicate balance between commercial growth and residential interests and redevelopment and historic preservation. Meghan George has the ability to review the day-to-day functions of City operations. She has the experience to apply a 360-degree view of City operations and close gaps that exist in city services.

My professional experience in helping CEOs structure their businesses has taught me to look at solutions in a 360 degree manner. From the immediately apparent—by ensuring we reinvest in our shooting range so that our officers remain prepared and well-equipped—to understanding that safety includes making sure our streets are designed for children walking to school as much as for the hard working parent commuting to their job.
