I am proud to announce that I’ve been endorsed by the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club after the last candidate forum. It is an honor to be endorsed by an organization such as the Sierra Club. The environment is an integral part of Poquoson and we must be good stewards if we want Poquoson to remain a town that can support our watermen and attract residents who want to live in an environment filled with clean waterways, natural habitats, and abundant wildlife. While I’m in no way an environmental expert, and have much to learn, I will be a diligent student and consult with organizations such as the Sierra Club and Chesapeake Bay Foundation when a decision comes before me on City Council regarding the environment. Growth and the environment is a delicate balance in a town like ours. I think there is room for both and I will do my best to be the kind of City Council woman who can find a good balance, but always consider the importance of keeping Poquoson a place we can call home.
