I am writing in support of Sheila Allen, candidate for City Council. If you are like me, you are trying to figure out the various candidates in terms of who they really are — not just what they say they are. Having been Sheila’s neighbor for 20 years, I can attest to the fact that she is the real deal — a genuinely caring member of our community who has the best interests of others at heart.
Not only is Sheila an exceptionally intelligent, energetic and effective leader, but she is also a very kind and loving mother, friend and neighbor. She listens to what people have to say and truly “takes you in.” She is always the first to go to a neighbor in need and has served as our neighborhood’s “glue” for 20 years, reaching out in love and support when individuals are suffering, offering her own assistance immediately and organizing the neighbors to help.
She is also the first one to acknowledge the joyful events in our lives, having hosted numerous graduation, farewell and welcome celebrations as our family members reach milestones and our neighbors come and go.
Everyone in our cul-de-sac knows one another and looks out for one another, and I feel that is in large part due to Sheila’s outreach and concern. She is a truly exceptional person, and I am convinced she will serve our city with absolute honesty and integrity as well as heartfelt compassion and concern.
Please do go to the polls on Tuesday and support Sheila Allen!
