Engaging Our Neighborhoods in Grassroots Conversations &
Strategies to Create a Culture of Growth
"I believe our greatest calling as human beings is to love one another by honoring and celebrating what makes us unique and by discovering what we
can create together."
Joe Cobb, Candidate for Roanoke City Council
For me, this calling is centered in the work of Equality and the practice of equity.
When we meet each other in the spirit of Equality, we acknowledge the forces that have historically separated us and find new ways to restore and renew relationship in equitable ways.
As your City Council representative, I promise to practice:
I understand that not everyone can come to council meetings, nor can their thoughts on big matters affecting our city be condensed to a time limit. I will come to your neighborhood to have real conversations and take your input to city council.
You have issues that are near and dear to your heart. Having a great city means uplifting and empowering everyone, and I will work to champion causes that improve our city and the lives of those who call it home.
I know that actions speak louder than words and commit to taking meaningful action on what’s important to you, whether that be through city council or connecting with leaders on other levels to get things done.
