Meet the Candidates, Bay Village Ward 2: Lydia DeGeorge
Four years ago, when I began attending meetings, the room was nearly empty. If people wouldn’t go to City Hall I decided I would bring City Hall to the people. I started writing a blog, then a Facebook page that has become the go-to for information, answers to questions, and lively conversations about Bay Village politics. Transparency and participation are my cornerstones for good government.
This is a time of momentous decisions for Bay. Do we want houses that cover entire lots? Townhouses? How are we going to pay for sewer improvements? How to curtail power outages? You need effective answers. As a Council representative my work will be defined by your input.
Our Ward 2 is the business district. One of my dreams is to recruit community members for an Economic Development Team. They will guide other residents interested in occupying our empty storefronts to turn them into thriving businesses.
I have advocated for residents throughout all wards and taken action on problems big and small. When Paul Vincent announced he would not seek a third term, I felt a responsibility to heighten my involvement. My attendance at over 200 meetings grants a seamless transition to continue to work for you and with the city.
I will bring the same passion to Council that started me on this path four years ago.
Your vote will take me from a voice in the room to a vote at the table.
