Anita Tabb is the only uncontested candidate in the entire city and has all but officially won the seat currently held by Commissioner Tracy Nordstrom.
“I’m delighted,” said Tabb, a newcomer to politics.
Even before her campaign, Tabb was a sometimes outspoken critic of Park Board transparency. After attending “almost 90 percent” of board meetings over the past two years as a constituent, she said now seemed like a good time to get officially involved.
“I’m just at the point in my life where I have the time to do this,” Tabb said.
She’s a resident of Lowry Hill and has been an activist for equal rights, women’s rights and the environment.
District 4 covers Southwest north of Lake Street plus the East Calhoun neighborhood.
