Why I'm Campaigning For Shelly Ward, Write-In Candidate For St. Albans' Ward 9 Council Seat

Because Shelly Ellis has already done more for her ward and for the city of St. Albans than most sitting council members have done, I'm urging residents of ward 9 - that's the area south of Kanawha Terrace and between the Vine Street hill area and the Hughes Drive area - to get out and vote for Shelly Ellis in the June 1 General Election.

I met Shelly through her citywide involvement in Neighborhood Watch. I'm the Neighborhood Watch coordinator in ward 4, Shelly is the Neighborhood Watch coordinator in ward 9. It's a thankless job that takes much more time and effort than meets the eye, but it's also the best way I know to really get to know your ward. Because of Shelly's experience and boundless energy, she's become more of a Neighborhood Watch Coordinator At-Large, assisting in the start-up and development of Neighborhood Watch programs in other wards around town. 

I don't live in Shelly's ward and I can't vote for her but II plan to campaign for Shelly in the South Vine and South Walnut areas of ward 9 because St. Albans needs council members who will get out and work for their wards and for St. Albans.
