WHAT IS AN "AT-LARGE" SEAT?
This year, Valparaiso is having its Municipal Elections where city residents will vote for a Mayor and City Council members. The city is divided into 5 Districts, with each District's residents electing a member of the Council. The whole city also elects a mayor, as well as two "at-large" City Council members.
These at-large members represent the whole city, and I am running to be one of your representatives. Being an at-large member frees me to take the opinions and benefits of the entire city into account when making decisions on the council.
