Elizabeth Wuerffel

Valparaiso City Council, At Large, IN

An educator, artist, and midfielder, Elizabeth (Liz) Wuerffel has invested herself in the city and region through her work teaching digital media art at Valparaiso University and co-directing the Welcome Project, a Northwest Indiana story collection, with her partner, Allison Schuette.

Liz believes city government should be open, transparent, and accessible, and that government decisions should benefit the whole and not the few. Given the increased cost of living and skyrocketing housing costs, Wuerffel is particularly interested in the role City Council can play in making sure that the people who work in Valpo can afford to call Valpo home. Wuerffel is running for City Council At-Large.
