I'm so glad to see Eric Shimpach is embracing service to the city of Portage. Yes, we need young new life on the council.
His around the world travel, genuine love of the city and country at such a young age of 26 will be a valuable asset at the council table. They can benefit from his fresh points of view.
I hope his presence will encourage more young people to come back to Portage and make it their home. He will listen to his constituents, ask their opinion, remember to be true to himself, and wear integrity as his crown.
Please consider voting for Shimpach on April 2.
Good luck my friend and God bless you.
Mary Hamburg, former Portage Alderman District 1, Elroy
