As a resident of Brea for 46 years, I have seen all the changes in our little town. I grew up one block from Laurel Elementary Magnet School and now have raised my family in the same neighborhood. A few years ago, there was a proposal to have a drive-thru restaurant literally across from Laurel Elementary. Kari was integral in the movement to stop this by stepping up and filing an appeal to a zoning change and Conditional Use Permit. The members of the City Council, at the time, voted to approve this project! While rallying along with other advocates for the children and families, Kari helped in the founding of Safer Avenues for Everyone, a nonprofit organization. SAFE was able to bring the litigation needed to stop this for now. Large businesses and special interests have little to gain from helping those who do not have a voice. I endorse Kari Windes for the City Council because she is running to be an advocate for ALL Brea residents and not just a few. I like that Kari has the background, education, experience, backbone, and heart to truly be a voice of common sense and reasonable development. In recent weeks, she helped support opposition to the Planning Commission to stop a proposed gun store with 1,000 feet of Laurel Elementary and within feet of residential homes. She is a leader and will always voice the side of Safety. Kari will make a wonderful addition to the City Council. — Jimini Ohler

Kari is the exact person we need on the Brea City Council to help bring more attention to our childrens education and safety. She has a proven track record of selfless representation for all children in Brea. She will fight, as she always has, to ensure Brea remains an amazing place to raise a family. — Lindsay Caulford

Kari is a fierce individual, who will fight for what she believes in. We are lucky to have her in our family, and in this community. There is no other individual who cares more about what happens in Brea. Your vote for her ensures future generations' ability to thrive in this wonderful city. — Kris Hendricks
Kari is concerned for what is right in Brea. Kari and a group of parents kept Raising Canes from building a business in a residential and school neighborhood. As a long time resident she is not new to the issues in Brea. This shows she will vote for what is right for Brea residents. — Christine Evans
Kari will be the voice of the Brea citizens for responsible development and public safety. — Mary Martinez
