Please Vote Adam Loos for Carbondale City Council
on Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Tuesday is Election Day, and I am asking everyone who reads this to vote for me for Carbondale City Council. During the last few months, I have participated in several candidate forums, I have completed several candidate questionnaires, and I have gone door-to-door in nearly every precinct. I hope I have been able to reach you during the campaign. In case I missed you, I’d like to offer you a few reasons why you should vote for me for Carbondale City Council.

I Believe I Have the Correct Diagnosis of Carbondale’s Core Problem

Carbondale was born as a railroad town, and that’s what it remained for the first 100 years of its existence. During the last 65 years, Carbondale has become a college town, but it never really completed the transition. If we want to improve Carbondale, we should focus on becoming a better college town.

I Have Proposed Ideas for Improvement

Correctly identifying the problem is of little use without identifying solutions. I have proposed ideas for improving Carbondale in my platform. I believe we need to revitalize our downtown, stabilize and improve our residential neighborhoods, and build productive and cooperative town and gown relations. I want to focus on public safety, sustainability, and growth in local businesses. I will take a balanced approach to budget and taxes.

I Am Flexible, Open-Minded, and Progressive

I have proposed some solutions to our problems, but I know that it takes four votes to do anything on City Council. I am willing to work with other council members and make the compromises necessary to enact policies that address our problems. I also know that I don’t have all the answers, and I am open-minded enough to recognize and support good ideas that others propose. My values match Carbondale’s values: I am progressive and open to change.

I Have a History of Civic Involvement 

During my time in Carbondale, I have been involved with the community. I currently serve the city on the Carbondale Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals. A few years ago, I joined with several of my neighbors to help organize the Northwest Carbondale Neighborhood Association. The membership elected me President of that organization, and I have held that position since. I previously served the city on the Carbondale Sustainability Commission.
