Anne Robotti for Morrisville Town Council
I’m Anne Robotti, and in many ways, I’m very typical. I love my family (husband, five kids, two cats, and three exceptionally stupid dogs), I love my job as a Social Media & Community Manager for Cisco, and I love my life here in Morrisville. In the past few years, I’ve become very focused on politics – how government affects our lives and what we can do about it. And I think everybody has a responsibility to get involved to the extent that they can – that’s why I’m running for Morrisville Town Council.
My job as a Social Media and Community Manager is twofold – achieve consensus and spread the message. This, as well as my role of “mother of five,” requires me to listen to everyone, come up with creative compromises, and get everyone’s buy-in to the final decision. I’ve spent years learning to help people collaborate and get on the same page, and I want to bring this experience to the Council. I want to listen to my neighbors, understand what they need and want, and then dig in and figure out how to get it for them. I’m excited about the opportunity to bring about real change that improves people’s lives.
The past five years have been a whirlwind for me. When I moved here I never would have dreamed that I’d find myself speaking at the NC General Assembly about judicial gerrymandering, or canvassing door to door to register voters, or making daily calls to my representatives about the issues that are important to me. And I want to leverage that passion to encourage everyone to have a voice in government. My first action as a member of the Town Council would be to embark on a listening tour – invite me to your clubhouse, your church, your PTA meeting, your Chamber of Commerce breakfast, and tell me what I can do to make government work for you.
