I have known Eric Shimpach my whole life and was very excited to hear he was running for Portage alderman. It would be nice to see someone that travels and has a lot of experience to bring new ideas to the city.

Getting involved in government was not something that I had considered before but seeing him at only 26 years old willing to step up and take on this responsibility really makes me consider becoming more involved.

As a young adult myself, I think electing a young and knowledgeable person like Shimpach to be the District 6 alderman would be great for the Portage community. My family and friends live in the district and they are going to be supporting him in this election. He has always been a dependable, friendly and caring person to everyone in the neighborhood. His knowledge and ideas will help the city for the better.

His mission is to bring more transparency and accessibility to the taxpayers of the city and I wholeheartedly agree with him.

Consider voting for Shimpach on April 2 for District 6 alderman.
