Vote Amber Sherrill for Ward 4 • Working Together!
Endorsed by the Missoula County Democrats
My husband Colin and I have lived in Ward 4 for nineteen years and have raised our two teenage daughters here, along with two dogs. I love and care about the City of Missoula and all our friends and neighbors in Ward 4.
My goal is to ensure that Missoula remains viable for those who live here now, and continues to be a place that future generations are both able and proud to call home.
Homeowner • Classroom Volunteer • Executive Director, Five Valleys Land Trust
I have served as Executive Director and Board President of Five Valleys Land Trust, on the Missoula Economic Partnership Board, on the Montana Association of Land Trusts Board, and on the Missoula County Land Use Technical Advisory Committee.
I am ready for this new challenge.
My top three objectives, if elected are:
- Strategic and thoughtful Land Use Planning to insure we maintain our quality of life as we grow, including continued efforts in open space conservation.
- Sustainable economic development including job growth, living wages, attainable workforce housing, and sufficient affordable housing for those in need.
- Climate Change Mitigation through policies that curb waste, decrease air pollution, and encourage sustainable practices in both local businesses and households.
I believe bringing new businesses and growing existing businesses with higher paying jobs is the key to increasing our average wages and closing the gap between income and housing. The City, MEP and the University need to work together for training, job placement, recruitment and retention efforts for both employees and businesses.
