Letter: Vanian can be trusted to make wise decisions

It’s in the air, the zeitgeist, it’s the time in this perilous era, it’s actually past time, to be electing women to positions of leadership. We see the impact in Congress of the women elected recently. There’s a vibrancy and freshness there — not business as usual. Women are connected to the future as we bear the children who inherit the world in which we leave them.
I’m thankful for capable people stepping forward to lead our country and community. But now, when given a choice, it’s time to give a nod toward women. Lord knows it’s gone the other way for time immemorial. Could that possibly have something to do with the turmoil and conflict proliferating through society?
My vote this year for City Council in ward 3 is Jennifer Vanian. She’s lived here for 42 years, raised her children here, and has been active in really important aspects of improving our community. With no financial backing, she’s an underdog. When the odds are against you, you work that much harder. I feel Jennifer can be trusted to make the wise decisions promoting financial opportunities balanced with stewardship of our priceless environment and resources.
Here’s an enthusiastic nod as well to Erika Gibson, Paula Stepp and Ksana Oglesby.
