Listening To The People

Share:

Considering the Council's history of not listening to its constituents in Alexandria, many voters want their elected officials to represent their needs, not follow party politics. How will you represent your constituent’s concerns, even against your fellow Democrats?

Listening to the people

I totally disagree with the statement from Lee Hernly.  Just because the Council may not agree with your position doesn't mean they didn't listen to it.  It's the job of Council to make the best decision for ALL of the City, not just a few.

Listening to the people of the City

City Council has always been very good at accepting comments and responding to the receipt of those comments.  Now what we really need is for them to HEAR what is being said, hear what the people want or don't want.  Be more involved with all the people not just the ones they feel foot their bills.  We are all part of this City, and we should not feel that if we don't speak up we won't be heard.  You need to hear us, you need to listen, you need to show compassion.  This is America, not just the City of Alexandria and as elected officials you work for the people, not the few, but for all.
