I am going into politics. It is not a passing phase for me. It’s something close to my heart, and the desire strengthens, daily. This administration is an atrocity and needs to be replaced before they get us killed. Bravado is nothing more than a penis measuring contest. Violence solves nothing! But diplomacy and discussion do. We are too large a country to try living like it’s the 1950’s again. Move forward and #Unite4Progress. My advice to those who do not like my political posts… Don’t read them. Scroll past until you get to the kids, puppies and kitties. That is what I do. Many of you get your news from Alt-right satire. If you want to believe that stuff, be my guest, but I’m in this for the real politics. The real solutions to world problems. My name is Melanie Bernhardt, and I will change the world. No matter how long it takes!
We cannot sit idly by while developers buy this election, make enormous amounts of money, not paying their fair share of utility projects needed for development and leaving the bill to the tax payers.
I am not here to make money. I am here to be the voice for the citizens of this city. I am not better than anyone else. I am merely a layman willing to step forward so others can be heard.
For me, life is an everyday challenge. Nothing is ordinary. Let’s work together. We can make this city extraordinary!

District 6 voters can rest assured I am not taking part in the spending frenzy. I am seeking small donations from small donors, but together we can move forward with a sensible policy on City Council. See my Donations Page for more information on donating to my campaign.
