Cliff Lazenby for City Council

Committed to Community

Community engagement is in my DNA. Through years of local public service, I have proven I can bring together members of the community, local businesses and government to help Portsmouth thrive. As a City Councilor, I would continue that community engagement to provide constructive leadership for positive change.

Make Positive Change Locally

Portsmouth means everything to me. Life, work, family, our great food and arts culture. Civic engagement is a vital part of the success we enjoy here. We need engagement from all sectors to tackle challenges such as affordable housing, smart development, and fair tax policy. I am committed to help Portsmouth remain the ‘City of the Open Door’ and would be honored to serve our historic community.

Engaged. Accountable. Committed to Community.

Portsmouth has a long tradition of civic participation, with good people collaborating to take on work-intensive challenges. We achieve that by being accountable and transparent, and the more residents in our community that take part, the better our democracy serves its people.
