I write in support of the candidacy of Lauren Kuby for reelection to the Tempe City Council. It is not my intent to repeat a litany of Lauren’s accomplishments, although they are many. It is my intent to pass on my experience with Lauren as a reliable, honest and hardworking leader of our community
For more than 15 years I have observed and occasionally partnered on projects with Lauren. She has a great passion for the City of Tempe, the neighborhoods and the lives of all who work and live there. I’ve witnessed her enthusiasm in the various community organizations she’s been involved with, her work ethic for doing whatever needs to be accomplished for a successful outcome, and her ability to inspire others with her optimism and energy. I’ve worked with hundreds of Tempe citizens through the various community, city and educational organizations I’ve been involves with and Lauren stands out for her intelligence, integrity and hard work. Her character is unparalleled in my experience and when she tells you something, you can truly count on it. That applies to information or a commitment to accomplish something; whether helping with a project, doing the hard work of the City’s business or striving to improve the lives of others. She is dependable.
As a current councilwoman, her background working at ASU’s Global Institute of Sustainability aids the Council in considering the effects their decisions will have on Tempe’s future. She asks the tough questions when needed, listens carefully to opposing opinions makes thoughtful decisions, and has the best interest of the City in her heart. She is tireless in pursuing that interest.
I support Lauren because she has demonstrated that she is the best candidate to fill the Council seat she occupies. I urge all voters in the City to reelect Lauren Kuby to the Tempe City Council.
