When the thirty current members of Ward 18 ran as a “Fresh Slate,” we pledged to:
- Reach out to engage and empower historically marginalized and underrepresented communities through issue forums, civics information, and voter registration;
- Hold regular, well-publicized, membership meetings that are open to the public, advertised in advance, and held at venues that rotate throughout each neighborhood in Ward 18, with multilingual and kid-friendly practices;
- Develop and hold ourselves accountable to publicly posted committee by-laws that define membership roles and responsibilities;
- Work for candidates and issue campaigns that share our progressive values: economic fairness; social and racial justice; sustainable infrastructure and environment; and strong democracy.
