Welcome! My name is Elizabeth Nelson (aka A2ELNEL) and I served on Ann Arbor City Council from 2018 to 2022. I know how our local government works and I believe that residents should, too. The content on this website is designed to help our community connect to the work of their representatives. Our democracy is stronger when elected leaders are accountable to the people they represent.
