Dawn Sloane has a quality essential to a good politician: She’s an extrovert. She’s good at getting out there, talking to people and expressing the interests of her constituents in council. She can take some credit for getting the winter parking ban adjusted for the season ahead, a change that has people cheering. Folks were less enthusiastic about her idea to have big box store satellites in the downtown, but at least she continues to suggest solutions to revitalize the city’s core.
