Anyabwile right choice in city

To the editor:

I am writing to voice my endorsement of Asantewa Anyabwile as the city of Steubenville’s 1st Ward councilwoman.

After speaking with her at length, I realize that she will be a substantial benefit to the citizens of the 1st Ward and an excellent asset to the decision-making body of City Council.

She has a wealth of experience as a city case worker, and she understands the needs of our people. We can relay on her common-sense approach. She has witnessed the plight of many needy people, and she will work to improve housing conditions that continue to be problematic throughout the city.

Anyabwile has expressed an interest in improving Beatty Park and creating a vibrant recreation center and adding a dog park. She has a vision to move forward by encouraging new business opportunities to make Steubenville a place where people will remain and prosper. Also, she is in favor of the right of free speech in a public forum without a need to sign up beforehand.

To those in the 1st Ward, please vote for Asantewa Anyabwile on Nov. 5.
