Angela McCalla

Candidate Statement

My name is Angela McCalla and I am running to represent Ward One on the Newport City Council. I am a woman of many ethnic backgrounds who finds strength and useful creativity in diversity. I moved to Newport five years ago because it is a place where I want to raise my son. I offer fresh eyes in approaching the myriad of challenges that face Newport: quality schools, parking, balancing growth with environmental concerns, balancing tourism with local needs, and addressing these issues within a budget.

As your representative, I would seek the perspectives of all constituents prior to decision-making about issues that affect them. People have a right to know what their government representatives decide, and how they reached those decisions. The community prospers only when the entire community is considered.

I ask for your vote on Nov. 6.
