Acacia District City Council candidates — in their own words

Vicki Hunt
Acacia District
City Council candidate

Together, we are building an amazing community. We have worked hard to revitalize our Old Town and improve public safety. We have also made great strides in building a unique arts district and enhancing our neighborhoods. We have accomplished a lot, but there is still more to be done. That is why I am running for re-election.
I am a strong supporter of public safety and am proud to be endorsed by both police and fire. We have increased and improved fire-medical services in south Peoria. We established Peoria’s fire-medical ambulance service and helped launch the community paramedicine program to ensure that our first responders can be there when you need them.
I am happy to report that we are also facing a downward trend in crime in Acacia.  This has been accomplished through increasing police support, cracking down on graffiti and ridding downtown of dangerous structures.
One of my greatest passions continues to be Old Town. I have been a resident of Old Town for more than 22 years and am one of the biggest champions for its revitalization. We have made tremendous strides to improve the community from new housing developments such as The Bungalows on Olive and Central Park as well as successful efforts to support redevelopment, such as Lucidi Distilling Co. and Driftwood Coffee.
I support adaptive reuse of old buildings and have welcomed State Trailer and Final Clearance across Grand Avenue. I have also been leading efforts to establish an arts district that will make our area a unique destination — unlike anywhere else in the West Valley.
I am proud to be a part of a council that has helped Peoria earn recognition as one of America’s 50 Best Cities in Which to Live. I would be honored to have your vote next August.
