EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The 4th Ward has a special place in newly elected City Councilman Alex Burton’s heart.
“This is my family, this is my home," says Burton. “I am a proud Bosse Bulldog.”
He says it is one of the reasons he decided to run for public office. Burton has accepted this victory as a personal responsibility to represent the people, who live here, and he has heard their concerns.
“Access to healthy food," explains Burton. "You know it is easier to get fried chicken and flaming hot Cheetos than it is to get fresh fruit and that was something that I heard repeatedly. Another thing is a laundromat. To actually get to the closest laundromat for a resident who lives downtown is to actually cross 41.”
