Rhodes-Conway can solve problems -- Anita Weier

February 16, 2019

Because I worked with Satya Rhodes-Conway when we both served on the Madison City Council, I believe she would be an excellent mayor.

Rhodes-Conway works very hard, is extremely knowledgeable, and treats people with respect and fairness. She is purpose-driven, not ego-driven. In addition to serving three terms on the City Council, she has long worked for the Center on Wisconsin Strategy, a national think-and-do tank based at the UW-Madison that promotes high-road solutions to social problems. Particularly relevant is her work through the center directing the Mayors Innovation Project, a national learning network for mayors. She has helped mayors across the country implement progressive policy solutions in their cities.

She knows how to get things done. I believe Rhodes-Conway would finally solve some of Madison’s longstanding problems -- by basing decisions on facts and open discussions with the community and the City Council.

She has pledged to focus on housing, climate change, transportation and racial disparities. I believe she might overcome the inequality and poverty that has overwhelmed the North and South sides of town due to past housing, zoning and transportation decisions.
