OPINION: Kailasapathy impresses with character, open-mindedness
I write to wholeheartedly endorse Sumi Kailasapathy for City Council, Ann Arbor. It is a rare opportunity for citizens to vote for such an accomplished, intelligent, and grounded candidate.
Her background is rich and varied: a human rights activist in Sri Lanka for social justice, a professor at EMU for 10 years, a respected CPA, and a community volunteer all make her ideal for understanding both the voices and needs of the citizens and the financial and technical works of city government. Though she graduated with highest honors from Wellesley and the New School for Social Research, it is her character and open-mindedness that impresses.
The city faces difficult decisions ahead and we need an independent, wise, and hard-working representative. Sumi Kailasapathy is that person.
