Thanks for supporting my no-party, no-money bid for Richland City Council position #5! It looks like I won't be advancing past the primary. I profoundly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know all the people who reached out to share their visions of Richland's future. I learned a lot and had a great time. I'll still be serving the City in my role as a member of the Richland Public Library Board of Trustees, and I'm always looking for new ways to help. If you have any ideas, don't hesitate to let me know!
The good news is: there's still a candidate in the race who will put Richland first! Vote for Phil Lemley in the 2019 general election. He's willing to consider opinions that aren't his own. He kept his dignity and professionalism intact despite a series of inept and poorly-articulated personal attacks from an incoherent poltroon. Best of all, he doesn't get his policy preferences from Facebook memes! I don't agree with Phil on all the issues, but he's definitely a candidate we can work with.
