NORTHCUTT for DISTRICT 5 Campaign
From Alan Northcutt:
After working to move the Waco City Council to act on
decarbonization, I have decided to take it to the next level and run for
City Council, District 5. We worked together on presentations and
comment periods at the Council sessions for almost 3 years. The
Council has taken some baby steps, but I believe it would benefit from a
member dedicated to climate action. I would also favor human values
over profit. For example, in cases of rezoning to allow short term
rentals in quiet neighborhoods, I would favor preserving quiet, safe neighborhoods
over profit for one person.
I think the campaign will be a challenge, but with 64% recognizing
anthropogenic climate change in Waco, and the victory of
Biden-Harris, I think we can win this. Also, I believe my C.V. is
superior to the other 3 candidates. Finally, I would be unique in
that as a retired physician, I would devote my time primarily to Council
work, as a full-time job.
If anyone would like to support my campaign, we will need volunteers
to canvass District 5. I would like to drop a pamphlet at every
residence in the District. So if you would like to help with canvassing or other
tasks, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks.
