Wren Reynolds is running for university staff member on the North Westwood Neighborhood Council. And if his track record proves anything, it’s that he cares about Westwood.

A lot.

So much so that he was a founding member of Westwood Forward, a group that pushed for the council’s formation. He’s also helped lay the groundwork for the council’s web presence – a promising development for a council that has a history of failing at outreach. Reynolds has also been supportive of transportation initiatives and even reached out to companies like Lyft, Lime and Uber with the intent of helping make Westwood Village more accessible.

His accomplishments speak for themselves. The previous council – the Westwood Neighborhood Council – had a history of suppressing businesses and preventing the community from becoming a better place for students. Reynolds has done everything within his ability to do the exact opposite.

But his goals moving forward are a bit unclear, and it didn’t help that he failed to respond to the board’s attempts to reach out to him to better understand his future plans for the council.

Still, the board endorses him for helping lay the foundation for Westwood to grow and for his ability to foster change in the community – something we are confident he will continue to do on the council next year.
