I want to thank VoteVets for their prestigious nationwide endorsement. Their recognition for a city council election means I have been identified as an ‘Emerging Leader.’ It is an honor to hold this recognition. I started this campaign with a simple philosophy: I served my country, I am serving my city, and now I am ready to serve the people. @votevets #VoteVetsEL #votevets https://secure.actblue.com/donate/votevets2023
Veteran of the Month Program As a disabled veteran, Chris strives to help other veterans. When Chris became Chair of the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Initiatives and Community Engagement, he immediately created a program to honor veterans right here in our city. Chris worked with the Mayor to create a program that would recognize an exceptional local veteran for their service and dedication to our country each month. In addition to receiving a personalized certificate from the Mayor, a duplicate of that certificate is displayed at City Hall for the entire month for all to see. To nominate a veteran, please see the attached flyer and application and contact Chris. Chris is honored to run this program and advocate for all Veterans.
Thank you to all who voted. As a veteran, I am glad you voted regardless of who you voted for. To those of you who voted for me, I can’t thank you enough. This victory isn’t just for me, it’s for all of us. On to November!
