Former student to run in election

April 3, 2009

There is an election April 7, 2009. Several alderperson seats (City Council) will be up for election as well as a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice.

I will be running for alderperson District 3 and my goals are to work with the University and local leaders to create a more sustainable economical future for River Falls.

I hope to address many of the issues that trouble UWRF students, like parking, and find solutions that work for both residents and students.

There are many prominent things that the City Council has done and will do that will greatly affect your temporary or permanent residency in River Falls. City offered internships to the Cascade redesign all fall under the City Council’s decision making process.

You may vote between now and April 6 at City Hall from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (City Hall is on the corner of Second and Elm Street). The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. For more information you may call City Hall at 715-425-0900, hit zero and ask for Lu Ann Hect, City Clerk. Exercise your right to vote!
