Annetta Town Council Election Q & A

Mayoral candidates Rick Machak and Bruce Pinckard

(Continued)

Are you for or against annexation of area residents served by the city’s water system? Why?

First of all, I do not believe all the citizens of Annetta know that Bruce Pinckard has been trying to push through the annexation without letting the actual citizens of Annetta know. They deserve to know and have a say if they would like to see the town of Annetta double it’s size overnight from 1,200 to 2,400. I am for the annexation if we put an annexation plan in place and do a case study to make sure this annexation is good for the City of Annetta and know the citizens of Annetta would like this as well.

If the citizens of Annetta do not want this and, after studies have been done, this plan is not good for Annetta then no I do not want this annexation. This annexation has a due process to go through. Anyone who wants to rush this through is not working for the citizens of Annetta. I work for and serve the citizens of Annetta. I am responsible to them first.

Why do you believe you are the best candidate for the position? What separates you from your opponent?

I am the best candidate for mayor of Annetta. I have a strong business background, and in managing a company and people and employers. I know how to get projects done. I have immense experience in taking a project from beginning to end. I am completer and a finisher. I know what is good for a city.

I know how to get along with all the city councilmen and work with them to help the City of Annetta and take it in the direction it needs. I know how to negotiate issues effectively. I have a strong will in keeping the level of justice for the citizens of the community and act in their best interest. I work for the people and keeping the direction of Annetta in their hands.

I have a strong desire to get all the issues of Annetta resolved and approved by the city council in an expedient manner. I want to see all the Citizens of Annetta happy and the City of Annetta thriving and prosperous.

What separates me from my opponent is I am a man of integrity and am honest and loyal. I am a doer and will get things done! I intend to work for the citizens of Annetta and get the city out of the confusion and flux it’s been in under the current mayor.

Please review my platform agenda on my website, www.rickmachak.com. I look forward to serving the citizens of Annetta and meeting their needs. I want to thank everyone for the opportunity to earn their trust and their vote.
