A Note from New Euclid Ward 5 Councilwoman, Christine McIntosh
Hello fellow Euclideans! I understand I am not well known around town, so please indulge me as I share a bit about myself and the vision I have for our future together. I was born in Euclid and moved to Mentor at the age of six, graduated from Mentor High School and attended Lakeland Community College while working full time. I have lived within east and west side Cleveland neighborhoods and happily settled in Euclid in January 2015 when my husband, Steve, and I bought our first house. We have since built a cozy home nestled within a city full of warm and inviting neighbors and are so thankful for the many opportunities to be involved in the shaping our community.
I have worked alongside entrepreneurs and young professionals my entire career and have learned a great deal in the process. I have experienced loss and failure, prosperity and renewal, and throughout all variables in life, developed a strong sense of resolve, self-awareness, and compassion for all beings. While I have lived in Euclid for just a short time, my passion for our city grows stronger each day. I believe we can activate our streets, storefronts, schools and parks with dynamic community events through the continued cooperation from our administration, residents and business owners. We can be prideful of our city because we take care of it individually and collectively, whether that is the effort put into cultivating a beautiful front yard, maintaining a neighborhood watch or picking up litter on a daily walk.
As Ward 5 councilwoman, I plan to hold regular meetings around town to meet residents and engage in positive discussions about, and better plan for, our city’s future. I will continue to act as an ambassador for Euclid by highlighting our city’s successes and promoting us as a destination to attract new residents, businesses and visitors. I have a strong vision for what can be developed and prosper here in Euclid. I see our positives and shortcomings and how we, together as a community, can build a brighter future for our beloved city. I look forward to our shared journey and hope for continued success as we all help grow Euclid together.
