The Campaign Kicks Off!
Updated: Jun 16
Hi I’m Connie Spears and today I’m announcing that I will be running for Madison City Council District 2.
My family moved to Madison in 1984 and I fell in love with Madison and its people. This Army Brat sank roots fast. My husband and I decided we wanted to raise our family in Madison and purchased our home here in 1998. As a long-time resident I have witnessed first-hand our growing pains.
During my 10 years of service on the City of Madison Board of Education, I became acutely aware of how growth directly impacts our schools and I believe we can do better. Madison is going to grow, but we can grow smarter, by focusing on drawing more commercial and industrial businesses. Commercial and industrial growth is critical for our fiscal viability and our quality of life.
We need to balance the demands of economic development, infrastructure, quality of life improvements and debt servicing, but this requires hard choices. I will be a good financial steward by striving for smart growth and transparency.
Another thing I learned while on the school board is that every Madison resident’s voice is important. Our council may hear your voice but to really understand, we must adopt a new sense of openness and really listen to residents’ concerns.
If you want to know more about me and my platform or you would like to volunteer, get a yard sign, get a car magnet, contribute to my campaign or ask me a question, please, bookmark my website at connie-spears.com. Also look for me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Please vote Connie Spears on August 25th and let me be Your Voice on Our Council.
