Dear Editor:

My husband and I have attended almost every council meeting over the past 8 years.  Councilman Dean, however, doesn't have the same record. In fact, in his first year on Council he missed 25% of the council meetings and never attended a single budget hearing in his three years on Council. In addition, reading the minutes of the Environmental Commission, we see he is marked absent more often than present.  We need to elect people who will take this job seriously.  If my husband and I are taking time out of our busy schedules to attend the meetings then we expect those who we elect to show up.  Let's send Councilman Dean a message on Election Day.
