Taking Everyone’s Perspective Into Account
“When I meet somebody or somebody recognizes me and comes up to talk to me about an issue that they’re having, I don’t treat them any differently and I don’t take less time, or I don’t take their issues with any less concern. I realize that this their reality, this is their life, this is what they’re preoccupied by, and it deserves the same attention and the same respect as any other resident or any other citizen.
There’s an aspect of, I guess being humble to a certain degree, but also respecting the people that you represent. Whether they voted or they didn’t vote, whether they elected you or they didn’t elect you. The minute you’re elected, you represent each and every one of them and all, and you represent them equally.”
