To the editor:

City government works for its citizens when the right council person works on your behalf. Our neighborhood had concerns about the effects of a storm drain sewer plan from a proposed development. It was discovered in Friday’s Echo Press that a request for bids for the project would be on the agenda for the City Council Meeting the following Monday.

A call to our council member, Bobbie Osterberg, on Sunday resulted in a meeting with Ms. Osterberg on Monday morning to hear the neighbors’ proposal and concerns. Ms. Osterberg believed the neighbors’ proposal and concerns had merit. She saw to it that the request for bids was tabled until city staff met with the neighborhood. The meeting took place later that week, and the issue was resolved to the satisfaction of the neighborhood.

Ms. Osterberg was willing to get involved and to work tirelessly on the neighborhood’s behalf for a good outcome. She was dedicated to listening to and understanding the neighbors’ concerns. She cares about the people in her ward. Her experience, commitment and integrity will make her an excellent Mayor. Vote for Bobbie Osterberg on Aug. 11.
