Promises Made. Promises Kept.
With over 20 years of public service, I suspect this is my last campaign.
It's a pleasure to run on my record: The sparkling new city park, the "one lot = one house" initiative to protect our wonderful neighborhoods, the new illuminated city limits signs, the new drainage requirements for new construction, our crackdown on rogue builders, the new infrastructure, the spring and fall festivals, and the overwhelming fiscal success leaving our beloved town in enviable financial condition.
With the help of a lot of good people, we've had a great four year run, and have immeasureably improved our city for the future - which includes my two-year-old twin grandsons!
Most importantly, I've tried with all my heart to bring decency, respect, candor, openess, and civility to city hall. You know I've promptly returned every email and phone call, and made every requested public appearance. The door to the mayor's office is symbolically and literally always open.
Your city government has never operated more efficiently, or been more open and responsive.
I appreciate your support. You know you can always call upon me if I can be of service; you know I'll respond.
