for City Council 2020
Hendricks for Harrisonburg
Sustainability - Business - Community
November 3, 2020
WHY I AM RUNNING
"I love that Harrisonburg is a diverse and welcoming city for all. I love living, raising my daughters, and running a business here. I am running for Harrisonburg City Council because I believe my skills and knowledge can help guide this city into a more sustainable and resilient future. This can be done by addressing environmental concerns, creating affordable housing, caring for the houseless population, supporting our public schools, and preservation of our historic buildings. I believe we also need to pay close attention to and empower our locally-owned businesses and workforce. We need to be innovative in our planning for the future and challenge the "because that is the way we always do it" safe option that we trick ourselves into taking. With the right vision and determination Harrisonburg can be a model city for sustainability, business, and community."
WE ARE #ROCKTOWNRESILIENT!

On this day life is hard. We are each not in the same boat as I have heard so many say. Some of us have a nicer boat than others. Some of us have a boat with a hole in it. Some of us don’t have a boat at all, but are holding to the hope of something floating by to hang on so we can rest for just a moment.
