It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I announce my candidacy for Mayor of Rose Hill in this year's general election. Rose Hill residents need and deserve a leader who will bring the citizens voice back to city hall.
I believe in government transparency, where citizens can voice their opinions more actively and effectively. Transparent governments with active and informed citizens produce better government, plain and simple.
Anyone who has been attending our city council meetings regularly is well aware that over the last few years there has been no transparency and very little respect for the citizens at our city hall.
I regularly attend our city council meetings, and constantly witness the council approving ordinances, resolutions and other new or old business without even short discussion or citizen input.
We have only one elected official left on the council. The current mayor and four of the five council members are all appointed officials without having earned a single vote from the community, and they appear to have forgotten who they represent.
It’s time to bring the citizens back into focus. It’s time for a new beginning that start’s with respect and courtesy for all residents and recognition of their concerns. It’s time for open effective leadership.
If elected mayor of Rose Hill, I pledge a participatory, transparent and effective government and I will make sure the citizens are treated right.
I would like to ask for your vote and would be honored to have your support in this year's general election on November 7
