Steve Owens, State Representative and East End Resident
Nicole Gardner has the analytical mind, vision, and independence necessary for the East End to prosper and flourish. A natural leader, Nicole cares about all the residents of her community and isn't afraid to ask hard questions. She will be the progressive partner we need on the Town Council. I urge my fellow East End residents to vote for Nicole on November 2nd.

Nicole is a doer and an activist. Her experience in business, combined with her passion for justice, will enable her to listen to her constituents, seek workable solutions, and be a constructive member of the Town Council as we negotiate the challenges ahead. She will be an enthusiastic, effective representative for the East End.
Dave Power, CEO & President, Perkins School for the Blind
