Mark Greene



Mark Greene


Education: Inver Hills Community College, State of Minnesota, A.A.S. Degree; University of Minnesota.
Occupation: Chairman of Democracy In Election Process, Legal Assistant, Veteran.

Statement:

Campaign motto: "Don't spend taxpayers' money extravagantly."

 

Paraphrasing President Ronald Reagan's "Trust but verify," regarding our friendly local media, and Municipal League, I'd say "Reason before giving blind faith."  I supported Councilwoman Maloney's amendment to have a Vote of the People on Primary ballot (Assefa-Dawson voted against it).

Making sure that FW's budget prioritizes basic responsibilities.  Wouldn't have approved Performing Arts Center that Democrat Assefa-Dawson supported.  Finding privately financed ways to revitalize downtown.


Accomplishments:

 

My organizations help many people with civic affairs; legal matters; maneuvering governmental bureaucracy.  Challenged KC Elections in court and at ballot box (received 22% for Director in 2011) with long memory of '04 congressional/gubernatorial elections.  Started "Feedback from the People" on my blog, meaning I'm meeting thousands of FW citizens personally, asking many about their concerns regarding government. Sponsor of former Initiative 1338 that tried to tell consumers whether GMOs are in particular foods or not.

Lydia Assefa-Dawson


Education: Bachelor of Science: Sterling College, Post-graduate studies: Seattle-Pacific University; Masters, Organizational Management: University of Phoenix.
Occupation: Family Self-Sufficiency Coordinator (King County Housing Authority)

Statement:

I was appointed to the City Council in March, 2014, to fill a vacant seat.

 

My time on Council has been spent addressing homelessness, affordability, supporting the youth, and as a long time case manager working on addressing barriers for all, including survivors of Domestic Violence, the immigrant and minority populations. My job is to engage residents regularly about their needs and help address them for successful life.

 

I was born and raised in Ethiopia and suffered a tragic accident as a baby, which resulted in my being raised by American missionaries. Though I have faced tough challenges throughout my life, I have adopted a positive and optimistic approach to handling adversities, a skill especially helpful in local government.

 

My priorities are to make our resident’s lives better, and improve service delivery, and support residents in benefiting from this economic recovery, and that’s what I will do, if elected.
