Sheff takes time out to visit with a younger
Sheff believes in a citizen democracy. Communities and
people should be making the important decisions that affect
their lives and they should be given the power to make positive
changes. Citizen government demands that people have the
resources and time to become involved and it demands a
commitment on the part of the citizens to get involved.
"I am devoted to the task of making this city a true
democracy. That should be the single most important goal
of a municipal public official or candidate."
On Hartford's City Council, Elizabeth has already made great
