To live in Homer is to walk your dogs down our Main Street sidewalk on a warm summer night and feel both known and safe.
For any community, these qualities are not ones which are easily achieved. They are earned over time with dedication and vision from countless residents of all ages and backgrounds, even when their contributions may go unnoticed. We owe our local traditions, scenic beauty, and safe neighborhoods to so many who took it upon themselves to leave Homer in an even better place than they found it.
I am lucky to call this community mine. For me, ‘home’ could never be taken out of Homer. I have difficulty imagining any other community, no matter how far away, for which I would develop an even deeper affinity.
All of us understand that Homer is not immune from the great challenges facing rural communities across our country. Climate change, the erosion of public safety, and growing distrust in our foundational political institutions are greater than any political party. They urgently demand from us new ideas and vision in places of public leadership.
