Carrie Ford for Verona Town Council


We have had the good fortune to be a neighbor and a friend of Carrie Ford’s for the past 10 years and know her to be an excellent listener who fully considers options before making important decisions.  She is insightful, considerate, fair and straightforward. We are confident that her fresh ideas and forward-thinking approaches represent the attitudes of so many Verona residents who are ready for a change from the status quo.  

Carrie has been working diligently to obtain a deeper understanding of the Town Council and how it can better serve Verona. She has tapped into countless resources and researched past ordinances and budgets to help inform not only herself but many of the residents that she has come in contact with. With her excellent research skills and keen eye for detail, she has quickly become a resource for those around her. She has wholeheartedly dedicated herself to this process and it shows in her breadth of knowledge about the inner workings of our town. 

When Carrie talks about her hopes for a more transparent Town Council, everyone seems to perk up a bit. Folks seem interested in and excited by the possibility of having a Town Councilmember who is committed to transparency in municipal governance.  This excitement indicates that this new direction is a long-desired one, that people have been hoping for a less-opaque council for some time.

It is not often that we each get presented with the opportunity to make a decisive and meaningful impact to our own lives as well as the lives around us.  On Tuesday, May 9, 2017 we can effect change and with that we encourage everyone in Verona to think about their loved ones, their neighbors and friends, and the town we all love, want, and deserve.  Imagine the possibilities and vote for Carrie Ford.  She will make a wonderful contribution to Verona’s Town Council.
