The newly opened Applewood Pointe of Shoreview was host to last night’s city council debate. Candidates vying for the two seats opening up this January met to discuss important issues relevant to the city as well as field questions directly from Shoreview’s citizens. This debate was actually the very first time five of the candidates were gathered together. As an active servant of the city, Emy Johnson was in the unique position to be able to introduce them to each other as well as offer congratulations and thanks to her fellow candidates for their interest in public service and their willingness to stand up and serve Shoreview.
The incumbent candidate, Emy Johnson has served Shoreview
for the past four years as a council member and was able to showcase some of the great work of which she has been a part. More importantly, Emy focused on highlighting her commitment and some of her thoughts for Shoreview — ideas that could become a reality if she is re-elected this November.
Her commitment to integrity, transparency and a high level of service is what Emy Johnson brings to the table. Some of her hopes for Shoreview include growing the financial stability of the city, continuing to attract premier businesses, which would offer many needed and desirable jobs to city residents, as well as preserving the city’s many natural lakes and trails — the very qualities that make Shoreview such a wonderful town to live and work.
