Brittany Burback
Acacia District
City Council candidate

Peoria is an amazing city. I loved growing up here with my siblings and have now chosen to raise my two children in Peoria. Since my childhood, Peoria has rapidly expanded, and the growth is bringing unwelcome changes.
Several Old Town Peoria historic buildings have been torn down. Others are slated for demolition. It is important for Peoria to embrace our rich history, incorporating the historic buildings and sites into the growth instead of erasing them completely.
I am running for Peoria City Council to help change the trajectory, especially the Acacia District. There are opportunities for growth that preserve our history and culture. However, there must be a catalyst that brings the right people together that removes barriers for new businesses. I will work hard for our community, seek to breathe new life into Old Town Peoria, and restore businesses that have called Old Town Peoria and the Acacia District home for decades.
I, and other Acacia District residents, have long felt our voices are not heard by our elected officials. Finding out information about our district has proven to be difficult. I will represent all of the people of the Acacia District, not just a select few. I will work to provide clear, accessible communication to every constituent. Community input should drive our elected leaders’ agendas — not their special agendas driving us.
In my career, I have managed very large international multimillion dollar projects where keeping the big picture in mind allowed for more efficient and effective micro project planning. As Peoria continues to evolve and grow, we need to formulate a comprehensive plan that ensures public services and infrastructure keep up with the growth.
I am fully invested in making a better Peoria for my family, and yours. Pease cast your vote for Brittany Burback on Aug. 28.
