Quote: “We're so segregated in our region, and we really need to pull together on the things that are common to us. ...To me, it's how government should work — everyone working together for the common good of the region and the urban core. It doesn't matter how big you are, how small you are, what political party you are. It really doesn't matter because you are focused on something bigger than yourself.”
