      Carrie cares for the same things this 85 year old
      neighbor who has lived here since 1959 does. She’s
      not a one issue candidate, she just loves this
      community. She lives with Chris, a lifelong
      Verona resident and their two beautiful children.
      Carrie is articulate, bright, and an attorney who
      understands contracts and other issues pertaining
      to law. I think she would be a tremendous asset
      to our all male council and will be objective
      in her decisions Please consider a yes vote
      for CARRIE FORD, you will never regret it.
