[GreenYes] Re: Personal News - I won election!

Congratulations Gary! Councillor Liss, then Mayor Liss has a certain ring to it. I think a lot of municipalities have a problem with pro-developer/anti-environment growth. Our mixed rural/urban community has become the unwilling recipient of urban sprawl, paving over of wetlands, clearcutting of forests and now the proposed mass-burn incinerator. We definitely need more town councillors and mayors with your vision in ALL our communities.

Subject: [ZWIA] Personal News - I won election!

I would like to share some great personal news with you. 

Thinking globally and acting locally, I have been active in my community for many years working to preserve open space and oppose rampant development that has threatened our beautiful rural community.  Three of the 5 members on our Council supported development and did not fight to preserve the town most of us love.  So I decided to run for Council, to shift the balance back to a majority working to preserve our rural lifestyle.  See my campaign website for more details on the issues we addressed at:

Despite long odds and facing two incumbents, I won election as a Town Council member.  I even obtained the most votes, so according to our Town's policies, I will be Mayor in 2010!

A special thanks to my Zero Waste and recycling friends who helped support me in this effort!
