A newcomer to city politics, Haskins has lived in Charlottesville since 1981, and currently lives in Meadowcreek Heights. She moved to town in order to attend medical school at the University of Virginia, and told WINA that she decided to run for office because of her “outrage” over the city budgeting process this past spring.
“It was horrifying and appalling and I kept waiting for it to start making sense, and it just kept making less sense,” she said. Haskins said she is not seeking a career in politics, but wants to improve the decision-making process in the city.
