Meet the Candidates, Bay Village Ward 4: Jennifer Wamelink
It would be my privilege to be your Ward 4 Councilwoman. My family and I have lived in Ward 4 for nine years. While I am a lawyer by trade, a skill set that will serve me well as your Councilwoman, it is the last several years that I have spent primarily as an at-home mother that set me apart and make me the best candidate for Ward 4.
As the mother of three children I have immersed myself in all Bay has to offer. You will see us talking to residents as we are enjoying the parks and pool, at Cahoon fields for soccer, taking classes at Emjaez, the nature center, and BAYarts and refueling at Mojo's. I was the President of the Early Childhood PTA, will chair my third Normandy Teacher Appreciation Luncheon this spring, and my third Holiday Homes Tour in November.
Perhaps most importantly as a Ward 4 resident I, too, have held my breath during a heavy rain only to feel the cold squish of a wet basement carpet.
As your Councilwoman I will make sure that your voices are heard before decisions are made. I am committed to help residents solve the Ward 4 flooding issues and will proactively monitor any land development that could exacerbate this issue. I plan to make revitalizing Bradley Park and playground a top priority. This community is my home and I am invested in its future.
I respectfully ask for your vote Sept. 12.
