Darlene Elias is for Ward 3. She is a long term resident of Holyoke and a home owner. She is fiscally responsible and socially progressive. 

Darlene writes: "Building Community is invaluable. I have learned so much about kindness and humanity from people in my ward while door knocking. Many issues have been brought up by residents of Ward 3, such as increased crime, drugs, panhandling, traffic, deteriorating roads and sidewalks, trash from the plaza, and wanting to keep the neighborhood safe and clean. Many also demonstrated concern for their neighbors, especially the elderly and children. It feels good to live in such a great ward. The kindest thing that was said to me by a resident recently was, 'I am going to vote for you because you are a social worker.' She went on to to say, 'You know that saying – "pull yourself up by the boot straps," – well, not everyone has boots.' Just love when people get it. As your Ward Councilor I will work to build community and make connections."
