My name is Jennifer M. Meyer and I am a candidate to be your City Council Ward 4 representative. I am a wife, mother of two young children, and a government attorney who has dedicated my entire career to public service.
If we join together and make our voices heard, we can fight for the change we want to see!
Voting serves all of us. Thank you for your commitment.
We are very fortunate to live in a wonderful community. I want to safeguard the reasons why we chose to live and raise our families in Westlake: keep taxes low while maintaining the fiscally responsible budget that the current Council and Mayor have implemented for years, support our safety forces, make sure our excellent service department has the tools it needs to keep Westlake beautiful, and continue to grow Westlake economically, especially in areas that have been vacant for a while.
One of my goals as your City Council representative, would be to create better communication between council and residents. During the pandemic, there was a surge of thefts and break-ins in Westlake and surrounding westside communities. This was not communicated to residents of Ward 4. I will create social media and newsletter tools to keep Ward 4 residents informed about safety concerns and economic developments.
My second goal is that I intend to respond to every resident who contacts me as his or her City Council representative. Too many resident inquiries have gone unanswered; it is time to change that.
Most importantly, I want to provide the younger Westlake family perspective on Council, so all points of view are considered in decisions. Westlake is a diverse community; everyone should feel represented on our council.
