I have worked with Barbara in a professional capacity for many years and know her to be an extremely bright, capable and visionary individual of the highest integrity. She understands local government and the policy issues that drive it, and is adept at bringing people together to craft win-win solutions to difficult problems. I wish we had her on our city council!
