A Note from Christopher...
I'm not a politician. I'm not beholden to anyone and I have no agenda other than to provide the best representation that I can for the people of Ward 4. I don't have quick soundbites to address the complex issues facing our city. But I believe in people and I trust in our collective wisdom. I know that we can find solutions when we come together in good faith in the spirit of collaboration. That is why I'm running to represent you on Lakewood City Council. Let's find new ways to work together that will move Lakewood forward into a prosperous future from which we will all benefit. Now is the time to find bold solutions and work toward the common good. I'm reminded of the old saying, "a rising tide lifts all ships." Let us rise together.
Imagine what we could accomplish together if we took the screaming out of politics. What if we moved beyond rigid and baked-in positions? What would be possible if we engaged one another constructively and worked to build bridges and to foster positive relationships?
As I've entered into the crucible of political life, I have been honored to gain trust and support across the spectrum - from those who identify as fiercely conservative to those who are proud to be stridently liberal. These are my friends and they are my neighbors. I aim to continue to earn their support. I embrace the nonpartisan nature of our municipal elections. The issues before us will impact us all well into the future. Our time is now.
Ours is not the typical campaign. I'm interested in listening and hearing and understanding. I truly want to know what you think and feel. I have more questions than I do answers. And I have faith. I have faith in you. I have faith in me. I have faith that we can find common sense solutions.
I believe in what we can accomplish together. This is the true heart of our campaign. I pledge to work tirelessly on your behalf. And we won't always agree, but I will always be accountable to you. This is my commitment to you. I invite you to join us as we build a stronger Lakewood...together.
