“Lizzy” Schmidt: Why I Am Running For Walden Alderman
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
I want to see the town of Walden as a safe, clean, friendly and prosperous community that is welcoming to visitors, with a vibrant small-town atmosphere that includes great natural beauty and amenities that facilitate a high quality of life for residents of all ages and interests.
Walden strives to be a model of small-town America — seamlessly touching the past through its historic character while actively embracing a bright future.
I believe in the preservation of culture, history and the values our small-town mountain community has long held. From a Saturday evening event at McCoy Farm & Gardens to warm Sunday mornings at Little Brown Church, I want to see Walden thrive without losing its roots.
My three top properties are to:
• Increase transparency and accountability to encourage all citizen engagement;
• Encourage healthy and beneficial business growth; and
• Put pressure on the county to properly fix and maintain the W Road.
I earned my BA, international studies, and law degree from the University of South Carolina.
As a member of the Willingham family, I spent a lifetime of summers in Walden. Over 13 years ago, I am my husband of 27 years (now) and our three children, fulfilled my lifelong wish and moved to Walden.
Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 3 and Early Voting is Wednesday, Oct. 14 - Thursday, Oct. 29. For more information, visit www.schmidtforalderman.com or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
