Debora Nelson and her husband Bob were the first neighbors to welcome us when we moved to Arlington four years ago. Debora has since become a valuable source of information for all of our neighbors, especially when it comes to addressing our traffic safety concerns as this area continues to grow.
Many of us are parents of young children who live at or near the busy intersection of N. Macleod Avenue and E. Fifth Street in Old Town Arlington. We have witnessed drivers blowing through that four-way stop at an increasingly alarming rate. We turned to Debora, who has represented the people of Arlington as a City Council member for 10-plus years, and asked her to help us find a viable solution. She encouraged our families to engage in advocating for traffic safety by attending City Council meetings and speaking up on behalf of our concerned community. Debora has been integral in connecting us to the right people so that we can move forward with an action plan in an effort to bring our traffic safety concerns to the forefront.
Debora, undoubtedly, has the continued support of so many of her neighbors. We have witnessed first-hand how she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work to make our community a more inclusive and safe place to raise our families. We are excited to vote for Debora to continue in her position on City Council as she has, once again, proved herself to be the very best candidate to represent the residents of Arlington.
