Meet the Candidates, Westlake Ward 4: Jennifer Meyer
My name is Jennifer M. Meyer and I am a candidate for Westlake City Council for Ward 4. I am a wife, mother of two young children, and a government attorney who has dedicated my entire career to public service. Over the course of my career, I have represented law enforcement in federal civil rights cases, argued criminal appeals, shut down nuisance drug and human trafficking houses, bars, and hotels, among many other criminal and civil matters. I have learned to work with people from all walks of life.
We are very fortunate to live in a wonderful community. I want to safeguard the low taxes and fiscally responsible budget that the current Council and Mayor have implemented for years.
Every resident should receive a response from their council person and to be notified of safety concerns in the neighborhood. During the pandemic, there was a surge of thefts and break-ins in Westlake. This was not communicated to residents of Ward 4. I will create social media and newsletter tools to keep Ward 4 residents informed about safety concerns and economic developments.
Also, I intend to respond to every resident who contacts me as his or her City Council representative. Too many resident inquiries have gone unanswered; it is time to change that.
My goal is to provide the younger Westlake family perspective on Council, so all points of view are considered in decisions. Westlake is a diverse community; everyone should feel represented on our council.
