Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As many of you know, I will be wrapping up 16 years of being a city council member May 1. It has been a combination of fun, honor, work, frustration at times, some long meetings but most of all, a privilege! However, I hope to continue to serve you as the new City Clerk. Phyllis Clark, is retiring after 20 years -- I will be attempting to fill her shoes and Phyllis has endorsed me. I am unopposed but am out knocking on doors. Maryalice Wu is running for Ward 1 and is already out introducing herself.

To see current council and committee agendas please visit the City of Urbana Website.

If you have issues or questions, please contact me by phone or email. I am usually available by 8:30 weekdays and will answer email and phone messages as I can during the day, evenings and weekends (please indicated a "best time" to reach you if that's appropriate). I no longer stay up as late as I used to but in general, you can call as late as 10pm -- but feel free to call me in an emergency any time.

Council and Committee meetings are broadcast live (and repeated) on UPTV, Cable Channel 6 every Monday night at 7pm (though we meet on Tuesdays where Monday is a legal holiday and we don't meet on 5th Mondays of a month). A full schedule for UPTV can be found on the city web site: . All city financial reports are on line as well.
