Small towns like Urbana are currently facing serious challenges involving infrastructure, unemployment, poverty, and attracting new businesses, to name a few. The Urbana Wins platform addresses each area of concern in detail. But even more importantly, when listening to these three young people, Weller, Cress, and Beverly, talk about our city, I feel hopeful and excited about the future. Their enthusiasm, sincerity, and passion is so genuine and heartfelt. I believe they love the city of Urbana and want it to grow and prosper and will work as hard as they possibly can to make that happen.
