Earlier this week, I sent a message to Mayor-elect Shewmaker asking him if he’d like to meet. He accepted that invitation, and today we met over coffee (one of us also had a cherry danish, which was delicious) at Kaffeine Coffee Shop And Roastery. While I’m not sure I approve of the way he takes his coffee (just like my husband!😂), I do approve of his spirit of collaboration and willingness to be a team player. We agreed on many things (we’re both dog people!), including that the positive progress we’ve made over the last 4 years needs to continue. We’re on the right track, and I am hopeful that with Mayor-elect Shewmaker, we will stay on the right track. I appreciate his willingness to meet, and I look forward to learning more about him and working with him for the best interests of a city we both love to call #SimplyHome.
