Committed to 4th Ward
Again: I attended 38 City Council committee meetings between January and September 2010 (and other council members attended 10, 11, 28, 29, 32, 55 and 64).
I have requested that I not be assigned to as many committees in 2011 as I was in 2010. It was difficult to keep up with all of the committees I was assigned to and I did my best to pick and chose the meetings I thought were most important. I use my time wisely to serve the people of Lansing’s Fourth Ward and will continue to do so. I have and will continue reach out to labor groups to discuss their concerns about ensuring area standards for wages while revitalizing contaminated and dilapidated property in Lansing. I also continue to welcome feedback, input, ideas and concerns from the people of Lansing’s Fourth Ward. I will continue to stand up for what I believe in and what I believe matters to people in the Fourth Ward and in Lansing. I invite everyone to learn more about the ward at www.lansingsfourthward.com and to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, www. facebook.com/jessica.yorko, 517-214-5684, and/or in writing or in person on Mondays at 7pm: 124 W. Michigan Ave, Lansing MI 48933. Happy Holidays!
— Jessica Yorko, Fourth Ward Lansing City Councilwoman
