Sage Gerling for City Manager

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


It’s time to come together to fight for the kind of city manager Genevans deserve. Over the last few months, Geneva residents have raised concerns about the city manager search, citing its lack of transparency and limited community engagement. Residents also spoke out against the makeup of the search committee, which is disproportionately comprised of men, developers, and corporate representatives. On social media, at community gatherings, and at City Council, residents made clear that we want a city manager who is committed to the city and its people, not pay-to-play politics.

 

There is only one city manager candidate who, without a doubt, treats people fairly, respects diverse voices, acts with integrity, and is committed to the people of Geneva. Sage Gerling has helped our city develop neighborhood initiatives, supports residents in the foundry neighborhoods, shows up to community meetings, and has served as acting city manager with grace and the utmost competence. The Geneva Believer reports that Sage is third on the list of city manager candidates, despite the fact that the two male front-runners do not appear to be people of integrity: one reportedly has three discrimination complaints from a previous job and the other was reportedly fired from two previous jobs, but declined to give a reason for the firings. No such questions dog Sage's record; she treats people with dignity and acts with integrity. Sage has been fighting for us for many years. It’s time we fight for her.
