Flooding is on everyone’s mind right now. That’s 100% because of Dawn Zimmers run for council and the issues she has raised. If she does not get reelected all the flood plans will last as long as the park plans did in 2005 when Marsh lost.

If you care about flooding (or fiscal responsibility, or openspace, or fairness in affordable housing…..) do what you can to help Dawn win.
