Amanda Como is running for Ward 1 councilperson and I couldn’t think of a better candidate.
I have known Amanda for the past 11 years, first meeting when our kids were in the YMCA pre-school program and maintaining a friendship through the years. When I learned of her candidacy, I thought about her in the role; what strengths she would bring to the table, and what core values drive her in everyday life.
In case you haven’t met Amanda yet or had the chance to get to know her, I thought I’d share what I know about her character and I hope you recall it when you cast your ballot.
Amanda Como is:
A woman of her word.
A friend who inspires and empowers others.
A mom who leads by example.
A neighbor with a voice and an opinion who will advocate on behalf of everyone in Ward 1.
An entrepreneur who thinks outside the box for unconventional solutions.
A leader who is determined to make a difference in our community.
At a moment in time, when we have this rare opportunity to reset our goals and collaborate across party lines for the betterment of our town, these are the character traits I want to see in our community leaders.
I am not a Ward 1 resident, but if I were, I’d have no hesitation putting my vote behind Amanda Como.
She won’t let you down, and I know she won’t let our town down.
