On Tuesday, April 1, Greenfield residents have the opportunity to return to the voting booth and help shape city government. For residents in the city's 1st Aldermanic District (bordered roughly north of Layton Ave. and east of 60th St.), incumbent Linda Lubotsky's presence on the ballot provides an easy choice for constituents on Election Day. Any time I have needed to contact my alderperson regarding neighborhood concerns or questions, Ms. Lubotsky has responded in a timely way, engaging in constructive dialog, even on occasions when our views did not match.
It is my opinion that many people underestimate the importance of voting in local elections. I have found that the local elections are the ones that have more influence over my daily life in Greenfield and not the "big" elections such as the quadrennial election for president. In this context, I urge residents of Greenfield's 1st Aldermanic District to support Linda Lubotsky's campaign for re-election. By returning her to office, residents will have an elected official who will truly listen to the concerns of the district's residents.
