PARK BOARD DISTRICT 4 // voter’s guide 2009

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.
