Walking the Walk

It wasn't too long ago that I wrote this:

"Are you willing to put your hopes, your values, and your time into the ongoing, living being that is Columbia?"

And this:

"We can't be static. We need to keep reaching, striving, working so that more people and visions are included."

Yes, only a few days ago I said this:

"The People Tree in motion...looks like participation in your neighborhood, your village, and in the ongoing plans for Columbia."

Well, I must be pretty persuasive, because I convinced someone to run for Columbia Council Representative for Oakland Mills.

Me.

I love Oakland Mills, and I love Columbia. Exciting things are happening in our community and we have the chance to bring our friends and neighbors into this process, to share knowledge and a sense of ownership. That's what makes a community awesome.

Serving as Council Representative means creating a positive working relationship with both the Village Board and the other Council members. It means being a good communicator, a good listener, and someone that people feel they can trust.

So I decided: if Columbia is a verb, I'd better start walking.

Join me?
