Af­ter two terms as a coun­cil­lor, Chais­son feels she still has lots to of­fer res­i­dents. In ad­di­tion to con­tin­u­ing to keep an eye on the city be­ing fis­cally re­spon­si­ble, she wants to turn her at­ten­tion to mak­ing life bet­ter for those with dis­abil­i­ties and

is sug­gest­ing a new in­clu­siv­ity com­mit­tee of coun­cil be formed. An­other plat­form of hers is hav­ing all is­sues dealt with at pub­lic meet­ings, with the ex­cep­tion of those where per­sonal pri­vacy may be breached.

“I be­lieve peo­ple should be able to see how and why we vote the way we do and the rea­sons why we do cer­tain things.”
