Letter: “George’s actions are consistent with what she says”

Hearing from residents is critical to making the best of Lakewood’s challenges and opportunities. This week’s Lakewood Observer includes a follow-up from a resident about our communication, while I have represented Lakewood on city council:

In November we will select a new mayor.

[…] One candidate showed us she is a straight shooter by thanking voters and asking us for our input via an article that appeared in this paper a couple of weeks after she took office. Writing that she welcomed phone calls, emails, and even sitting down for coffee, Meghan George provided a refreshing alternative…

Meghan George’s actions are consistent with what she says. She’s shown us she has our best interests at heart and in mind, and that we can count on her to do what she says and to do the right thing the right way. Lakewood needs Meghan George’s leadership. Please vote for her on November 5.

Thank you very much, Mr. Soltys!

Solutions for safer streets

A 360-degree approach to public safety includes considering the details of real-life, every day safety. It’s very encouraging to hear about good results from digital speedometers, an initiative which I have supported while on council.

As mayor, I will continue to work with residents on solutions which are right for their street.

New Labor Endorsements

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.
