I encourage voters in Oberlin to vote for Linda Slocum for Oberlin City Council this November. Linda’s tenure on the Council, like many others who have held the position, could be scored based on her accomplishments, her advocacy, and her work ethic. Yet, she would be the first to downplay any of those distinctions. Linda is a uniter and a team builder. Her core strength is seeking consensus among her colleagues. City Council brings together seven unique individuals to make group decisions, and Linda’s key role has been to facilitate compromise. Linda’s voice on the Council is one of experience and wisdom. Join me in voting for Linda Slocum on Nov. 5.
