Glasgow for District 18 campaign launched with a bang

David Glasgow officially launched his bid to fill the vacant District 18 Metro Council Seat Sunday before more than 120 supporters at Provence Breads & Cafe in Hillsboro Village Sunday afternoon.

Glasgow outlined his “Neighborhoods First” campaign priorities as “...preserving the unique character of our homes and businesses, ensuring that our streets are safe, and promoting outstanding educational opportunities.”

During his speech he announced that the campaign team had already achieved a key milestone in the race by securing more than $15,000 from over 100 individual pledges. The campaign received $1,200 at the launch event in addition to pledge amounts that were delivered at the event.

“With 12 years experience working with elected officials, entrepreneurs and community leaders, I know what it takes to get things done in government and how much work it can take to bring public and private interests together to achieve our goals,” Glasgow said.  “Sometimes it’s a carrot and sometimes a stick, but there is away a way to bring people to the table.”

“This election provides a unique opportunity to put that experience to work to improve the quality of life right here at home,” he said.

The Glasgow for District 18 campaign committee includes Treasurer Kathryn Barnett, Campaign Manager Joe Woolley, Volunteer Coordinators Jon Glassmeyer and Scott Ridgway, and advisors David Taylor, Mimi Bliss, Will Cheek, Jim Grinstead, Van Pond, Maria Salas, and Glenn Swann.
