Allow Me To Shake Your hand
OK, maybe not such a great idea in our current ‘crisis.’
But clearly we want to reach out and connect at times. Particularly when we have an issue that requires some level of cooperation with those who serve us in government. Communications with, and availability of our elected leadership is critical for a working community.
This is why in all my years of public service, I have made sure that I can be reached without too much trouble. I have lived in the same home for 30 years (933 Avenue D), and have kept a land line (929-2067) for those times where folks might need to let me know what is going on.
I try to be as available as is humanly possible.
As someone who has raised a family and lived in East Bay for three decades, I have some of the same concerns as you, have dealt with some of the same issues as you, and expect the best from whomever we elect. When we reach out to our leadership we have expectations of being taken seriously.
With your support, I will take those concerns and issues to the other side of the phone line to make living in this great area even better!
