Alexandrians can be heard! Boyd has been hard at work listening to citizens in various parts of the city and knows there is a place on city council for an independent thinker who will not be influenced by the money in politics. Boyd has never accepted money from developers or those who might do business before city council. Why should he? For Boyd, there is no question where to draw the line. Boyd will bring his love of history, the arts, and the environment to the forefront of his decision making. He will work hard to engage citizens in issues facing the city and listen to their concerns.
He will work with his colleagues on council to make smart decisions that are best for the long term, and make Alexandria an even greater place than it already is. Boyd has helped save buildings, and fought for funding for important projects, organized efforts to stop the rezoning of the Waterfront, and spearheaded the effort to save the historic Carver Nursery School/American Legion Building in the Parker Gray Neighborhood. Boyd believes we must first preserve what makes our city unique, improve our parks, and we should not always look to new development to solve problems. Maintaining diversity, affordable housing, helping seniors stay in their home and good schools will also be priorities for Boyd.
Boyd is ready for the challenges to come, and we need Boyd on City Council to fight for us.
