Vote Slocum for City Council

 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.

Join me in voting for Linda Slocum on Nov. 5.
