Within the next month, the Fort Collins City Council will be appointing a resident of District 4 to fill Councilwoman Kristin Stephens' seat when she assumes her position as a Larimer County Commissioner in January. The person filling the vacancy will have the opportunity to dive into Council work right away, foster relationships with fellow councilmembers, and demonstrate skills on the job. Although I am committed to campaigning for the April 2021 election, no matter what the outcome of the appointment process, I would be honored to enter the race as the incumbent. I am ready to roll!
If you would like to support me in the appointment process (and I hope you will!), here are two ways to be an active member of Team Melanie:
Take a moment this December to email Mayor Troxell and current councilmembers about why I am the woman for the job. All contact info can be found here: https://www.fcgov.com/council/
Participate in public comment on my behalf during the virtual City Council meeting on Tuesday, December 22nd, starting at 6 p.m. Directions on how to participate in the remote meeting can be found here: https://www.fcgov.com/council/councilcomments#cb-39024-6678
I am so very fortunate to be surrounded by a supportive tribe. I appreciate each and every one of you!
