Letter: Justin Wasson is right choice for C.R. District 3

I support Justin Wasson for District 3 of the City Council.

I first met Justin during his time on the Wellington Heights Neighborhood Association. As president of the association, he showed up when no one was looking, gave when no one was watching, and worked hard to make our neighborhood a better place to live.

Justin is a successful small-business owner who knows the value of hard work. His success comes from a common-sense approach of making his customers and their concerns the priority in everything he does. Justin will bring that same attitude to representing our district.

Justin wants to make the city a better place for all its residents. As a resident of a core neighborhood, he is aware of the state of our streets and believes we need to repair our infrastructure. I support his plan to overhaul the city’s zoning codes in a way that makes sense for everyday people and small businesses, not just corporate interests.

I’ve watched Justin listen to the concerns of those around him and bring together people from various walks of life. He knows how to do the hard work of putting others’ needs first. Justin is the only candidate that I can guarantee will work hard to represent all the interests of the district and not just a few and he will work to make the government work for us.

Join me in voting for Justin Wasson for District 3.
