Eric Shimpach would be a perfect addition to the Portage city government. He has always had the city's best interest at heart and would continue that as a council member.
I’ve known him all my life as my next-door neighbor. He always has made it a great priority to connect with as many of our neighbors as possible. He works incredibly hard, has a huge heart and is very intelligent.
If I still lived in the area he would have my vote. However, my parents still live in the district and will wholeheartedly be supporting him in this race. I truly care about my old neighborhood and would highly encourage my friends and neighbors in the 6th district to support Shimpach for council member on April 2.
It is really important that we get young people involved in government, as it shows that millennials can have a say in how we make positive change to our hometown.
Please consider voting for Shimpach on April 2.
Janessa Kleist, Portage
