I am Beth Bashert and I represent our community on City Council. I have lived here for 28 years, raised our family, and have been active in our community and in politics as a campaign manager and community organizer.
Ypsilanti has many challenges we have to meet and resolve in the next period of time. Water Street, a looming fiscal problem, changes in the economy and the need to lure businesses and residents to choose our community. I want to be a part of the solutions.
In my work as a community organizer, I have been a leader who has brought people together time and time again. I have worked with hundreds of volunteers, communicated difficult and complex issues to a broad range of people, and had both victories and losses.
In all that work, I was always trying to solve a problem, make our community safer or more comfortable for all people, or move a process forward. Whether you agree with every campaign or issue I have worked on, it is clear I am working towards solutions and cures.
Voting for me on November 6th will be a vote for someone who will work to bring people together as much as possible to create solutions to the problems we are facing. Let's all keep Ypsilanti the wonderful community we love, and help it become even greater in the future!
