Friend and former co-worker
Alisa has been working to better the Orono community for as long as I have known her. She is thoughtful by nature and values diverse perspectives. These traits provide her with a unique ability to forge strong working relationships with people from all walks of life, an essential skill when it comes to finding new solutions to challenging issues.
I met Alisa when she volunteered to co-create a recess program for elementary students designed to promote the pillars of character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship). I also worked with her in the Orono schools when she was a substitute teacher. Alisa is flexible, hard-working, and fair. She also looks for common ground and brings out the best in others.
Alisa has been a longtime advocate for the community and will be an asset for Orono as a member of City Council.

Alisa is a great communicator. I watched her interact at a neighborhood listening session and while door knocking here. Her manner is respectful, direct and inviting, so parties are energized towards discourse and even willing to participate to implement solutions. Electing her to the City Council will be a step towards restoring transparency and trust in city decisions.
