Lark Galloway-Gilliam

It has been my pleasure to serve on the Neighborhood Council for two terms, first as the chair and more recently as the Area 3 Rep. I ran for the board with the goal of helping to ensure greater equity in the allocation of city services and economic resources through greater public participation and accountability between city hall, city agencies, the business sector and our community. While we have made great strides – we have a great deal yet to overcome and achieve. I believe we can achieve real change and improve the quality of life in our community if we are willing to come together and work together. I am committed to working with others to ensure our community meets the needs of its residents and those who provide quality services and products.
