I want to put my love and support for Laurie Sylwester in front of your eyes. I’ve known Laurie since I was 16, taken multiple classes from her at Columbia College, and have kept in touch over the years. She’s intelligent, articulate, educated, and very experienced. Those aren’t just selling points for a good supervisor; in my mind they’re prerequisites. I’ve read statements from multiple other candidates who claim they will listen to the will of the people, yet also lay out their personal political agenda in the same mailer, telling us how they have already decided to vote on many issues. This position should never be used as a platform for a supervisor’s personal, religious, or political goals. Laurie has done this job, knows exactly what it entails, and is ready to do it again. She’s going to listen to those she represents, because it is in her nature to do the real research and work for the greater good (The Greater Good). It feels *so good* to have a candidate I can vote for whose character and integrity I know to be of such high caliber. If you have any specific questions or issues, reach out to her!
