I support Ashley Rayback, Timothy Stockdale and Edward Gilbert in that order to represent the Provost South Neighborhood.
I am also disappointed that this poll was only open for a week. I found out about it today by accident.
I realize our old Neighborhood Chair is AWOL, but why were there no emails to the neighbors to alert them?
Not everyone is on Facebook these days.

Ashley Rayback is my first choice. She has been active in the PTA for years, and has a Master’s degree in Public Relations. She is intelligent and dependable I would also recommend Tim Stockdale and Ted Gilbert who are very reputable and reliable.

I know Natalie Whitlock from her work with the Office of Civic Engagement at Brigham Young University. She has a passion for creating a better community and does so by listening carefully and including diverse voices. She has been a small business owner and has experience with nonprofits and community groups. She would make a positive and productive contribution to Provo through her service.

I fully support Katherine Hall for representative of the Provost district. Katherine is an active, concerned, and involved neighbor. Not only does she care deeply about the neighborhood, but she knows how to get things done. She was instrumental in getting the school crosswalk put in on 300 South (a crosswalk in which my own daughter was hit by a car). She has worked hard to slow traffic on 300 South to keep our kids safe, and has made efforts to keep the neighborhood parks safe and clean.

Natalie Whitlock is what the neighborhood council needs. In the few years she has lived in Provo she has become interested and involved in the community, including zoning and planning matters, education (her husband is a teacher), the refugee population (volunteering at Utah Valley Refugees), and the lives of students (through her work at BYU), She has experience in both business and non-profits experience, and community building. She is passionate about civic engagement, including listening to a wider variety of voices (instead of the same-old, same-old).

In the Provost neighborhood, I support Katherine Hall and Katie Holmes for the Neighborhood District Executive Board. I have worked with both women. They live on opposite ends of the Provost neighborhood. Because they have different neighbors, together they would represent a good range of views from our Provost area at the meetings. Both have experience in Provo and out-of-state that would bring fresh ideas to our community. They also have distinct areas of expertise that would compliment each other well.
Katherine volunteers serving people who are homeless. Her compassionate heart and ability to locate and distribute resources to those in need would be very helpful. She also is a super hard worker and would be a great advocate for our area.
Katie has a logical mind that can see many facets of problem. She has a cooperative spirit that looks for common sense and compassionate solutions to problems. She also works hard and wants to have a cooperative, well-functioning neighborhood.
I strongly support both of these women.
On a related note, I would definitely like to see at least two applicants in the Provost and Provost South neighborhoods representing District 2. Those areas have many people willing to serve, and it would be nice to see the City Council select representatives proportional to the number of people who applied in each area.

Natalie Whitlock is trying to be a part of the Provo City neighborhood executive committee. She would be a thoughtful addition to the group. She is civically minded, open to hearing both sides of a problem and will be thoughtful in helping make provo neighborhoods a welcoming, diverse and better place to live. Because Natalie has lived in an other state she will bring new ideas about how to address some of the hurtles that we are facing in our own neighborhoods. I would be happy to see Natalie in this roll.

Natalie Whitlock would do a great job on the Provost neighborhood council. She has a great perspective and she's willing and able to serve on our behalf.

In the Provost Neighborhood, I have concerns about Melanie McCoard serving on the Neighborhood District Executive Board. She often takes an adversarial approach which I do not find to be the most collaborative. Also in Provost, Hannah Petersen was pursuing a parking permit program on Slate Canyon Drive that felt unnecessary and seemed to unnecessarily target renters.
In the Provost South neighborhood, I think Daniel Jensen and Kristina Davis would be excellent. Daniel has worked in local government and been very involved in the past. Kristina has been an amazing resident of our area who has organized extensive cleanup and service activities at Slate Canyon!
I also think Cristie Charles would do a great job--her recent advocacy efforts within her HOA are impressive. Even though I disagreed with her conclusion, I think her position was well-researched and well-stated and I respect the time she dedicated to organizing neighbors in the area.
I would prefer to have more diverse viewpoints represented, as many renters are longstanding residents (me! I've lived in the same townhome for 5 years) who are committed to and involved in the community.
