  1. 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.
