Letter: Vanian, Gibson will prioritize what is most important to community

In this election we need to make a choice to embrace the future.

I know Jennifer Vanian to be a tireless student of the necessary way to move forward, with the environment in mind. Her decision that preserving the confluence area as a riparian area with little or no development, aligns with a view of our coming needs, where riverfront access is rare and disappearing.

Erika Gibson also appears to look realistically at the changing character of the future. Her youth, education in law and time spent in the Governor’s energy office give her a fresh and informed overview, unencumbered with a history In past city decisions.

I am voting for these women to take us forward with their ability to properly prioritize what is most important to a livable, vibrant community.
