Connecting the Power of Community

I’m Victoria Szopinski and I’m running for Mayor! I’m running for Mayor because I believe in this community…because I believe in the people of this community…because I believe in Local Government…and because I believe we share values and hopes for the future of our community. I believe we want Ames to be safe, caring, inclusive and welcoming to ALL.

This IS the Golden Age of Local Government. It’s tough right now to influence and change what’s happening in our state government and in Washington D.C., but in Ames we can influence and increase participation in the decisions that impact us now and well into the future. We can make sustainable decisions that consider the long-term impacts on our children, on our economic prosperity, on our environment and our over-all quality of life.
