HELP BOB WOOD RESET ALEXANDRIA CITY HALL
Thank you for visiting my page! I am excited about the opportunity to bring a new voice to Alexandria's City Council.
I believe in a better future for Alexandria - one that truly reflects our identity and secures a livable city. Our hometown is at risk of losing the heritage, diversity, and neighborhood qualities we love so much. It's time to restore our local voices in the politics and planning of this city. In this election, we can change course. I ask for your support and vote for City Council to help set a new path to a better tomorrow.
I bring experienced insight, proven leadership, and innovative problem solving to help build Alexandria’s future. It’s time to refresh and strengthen reasoned debate to review old policy assumptions, stale ideas, inadequate strategies, and tired slogans.
My goal is to RESET City Hall and this requires:
Alexandria Citizen: Hometown since 1964 - Seminary Hill, West End & Old Town Founder, Strategy and Management Consulting firm Homeowner, Father, Grandfather - four generations!
Respect - Our commitment to all citizens
Excellence - Our standard of performance
Service - Our first duty in government
Economy - Our concern and criteria for public spending
Trust - Our best measure of civic performance
Public Service Record: Appointed by Mayor Euille, Waterfront Plan Work Group Virginia Commision, National Security & Military Facilities/Jobs Board Member National Trust for Wounded Warriors
Changes we need in the City government to restore trust and excellence:
- We can make Alexandria better: The November election is an important opportunity for Alexandria’s citizens to reset City Hall, reestablish dialog, and renew public trust in city government.
- Alexandrians should expect the best: We should set high standards for the quality of our City government, enforce accountability to the citizens through better and more transparent practices.
Proven Leader: Army Commander, U.S. Korea and Iraq Deputy Commandant, Army Command & General Staff College School Board President Fort Stewart, Georgia
- Restore the public in public service: Neighborhood after neighborhood, one citizen group after another, all feel threatened, ignored, or dismissed by a city government seemingly intent on rushed and excessive development based on old assumptions.
- Let’s unite Alexandrians again: We must end the combative climate and restore collaborative, respectful dialog. City government seems anxious to fight its citizens or its own agencies in costly legal battles rather than sustaining dialog and seeking mutually agreeable solutions. It has helped divide us when it should work to unite us.
