MEET CISA KUBLEY
Business owner, homeowner, community member
Cisa is a transplant to New Albany who is proud to call this charming city her home. Growing up in Bloomington, IN, she was active in her community from a young age. Speaking at a council meeting as a child, volunteering in a number of community arts programs, and an active volunteer for Habitat for Humanity throughout high school, Cisa is no stranger to public service.
Cisa opened Sew Fitting in 2008 during the chaos of the Recession. Through perseverance and an unstoppable drive to provide the services her clients need, she has grown her business into a thriving downtown anchor in the Underground Station.
Over her years as a resident of New Albany and a downtown business owner, Cisa has served on the boards of New Albany First, the New Albany chapter of Business and Professional Women, been named one of the 2013 20 under 40, and now serves on the national board of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals.
Cisa has been, and continues to be, a believer in the power of the individual as well as the ability of the community to be a force for change. She is ready to be the voice that District 4 needs on the New Albany City Council.
THE ISSUES AT HAND
Time for Change
It's time for our neighborhoods to be as important as the downtown.
Walking and driving through District 4, there is no shortage of evidence for the neglect of the roads and sidewalks.
Nearly every block has missing, overgrown or crumbling sidewalks.
Potholes, missing street signs, and visibility issues are everywhere.
It's time for District 4 to have a councilperson who will listen to the issues throughout the district and work to make sure the voices of our neighbors are heard.
Cleaner, healthier neighborhoods for all residents
Cisa is proud to support and push for change throughout the community. One simple change could have a drastic impact on our district.
Throughout District 4 there are storm drains, sidewalks, alleys, and yards full of garbage. What you won't see throughout our district? Public trashcans.
With nowhere to deposit trash while walking the neighborhoods, garbage often winds up in yards and clogging our gutters. When storms come, these drains cannot fulfill their proper function, resulting in flooded streets.
The addition of a limited number of easily accessibly and reasonably spaced trashcans would provide a radical change to the look of our entire district.
LACK OF REPRESENTATION
The job of a councilperson is to be an active advocate for their constituents.
A political campaign is like a year long job interview. When residents of District 4 elect a councilperson to represent them, that councilperson has a responsibility to do the job they have been hired for.
This means more than just showing up for the required monthly council meetings.
It is just as important, if not more so, for council members to be active participants in their district. Cisa firmly believes that this includes being easily contacted when residents have questions or concerns.
As as elected representative of District 4, Cisa is committed to being a voice for all residents she would represent.
You Can Help
Cisa is so appreciative that you would like to get involved. There are many ways for you to help her push for change and become part of making the community a better place. Whether you would like to volunteer your time or you are looking to make a monetary donation, Cisa really appreciates all of your efforts.
