Elkhart Council at Large

Arvis Dawson

We can achieve by working together

Elkhart is on the cusp of greatness. As member of the Elkhart City Council I plan to make sure that we achieve that greatness. The council and the administration should work collaboratively for the benefit of the entire city and when there are disagreements, civility should reign. Elkhart is a Vibrant Community and I want everyone to feel that way. I want people who visit our city to have a lasting memory of their visit. I want my grand-kids to remember growing up here and come back to raise their families here. I want Elkhart to be a destination place.
