Dear Friends,

I begin my term as councilmember with a feeling of excitement at the possibilities and opportunities ahead, tempered with a sense of responsibility and the knowledge that I cannot do the job alone.

Of course, nothing gets done without at least four votes on the City Council, so I am looking forward to working with my fellow councilmembers - to share my thoughts and ideas and listen to theirs with respect and an open mind. I will take each issue on its own merits, deal with the facts as they are, and act in the best interests of our community. I believe the other six councilmembers will do the same, and together we can make this great city even greater.

But more than that, I also need your help. My campaign was all about listening to thousands of residents so that your voices are heard. I’m still listening. I need to hear everyone’s point of view - their comments, suggestions, criticisms and proposals - to make the best informed decisions I possibly can. With your help we can ensure the continuing strength and vitality of our extraordinary city and the quality of life it provides.

Please share your thoughts and ideas with me via this website, my city email, or at the town halls and other public meetings that will be held in the coming weeks and months.

We are all Newporters moving forward together.

Sincerely,



Diane
