Letter to the Editor by Janet Smith
If you’re feeling that you don’t know enough about the candidates to cast an informed vote for Chapel Hill Council, I would like to tell you about Amy Ryan.
I’ve known Amy for over 10 years and first met her in meetings on development issues in town. Her thoughtful questions and solid ideas impressed me before I knew her name. Amy is creative and realistic. She listens carefully and she thinks critically. She honors all participants.
Amy has been a long-term contributor to our town and I applaud the time she has given to our community. She was active on the Chapel Hill 2020 Plan, co-chaired the Central West Small Area Focus Group, and has served on the Town Planning Board. She has demonstrated her commitment to serving Chapel Hill and she understands the effort involved in being a council member.
I welcome your consideration of Amy Ryan for Town Council. I believe she will serve the town and the citizens of Chapel Hill with integrity and dedication. Please join me in voting for Amy Ryan.
