Two candidates for Place 2 in Town of Annetta

Annetta Town Council Place 2

Brian Scott Fibiger

Brian Fibiger, 45, is a licensed insurance and financial professional working for First Command Financial in their customer service center. He and his wife, Mary, have been married 19 years. The couple has two daughters. Ainsley, 12, is a student at McAnally. Aubrey, 5, will be starting at Stuard in the fall. Fibiger graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin in 1996 with a degree in Elementary Education. He is actively involved in his church, where he has served on the Mission & Ministry Board for the last few years, and he currently serves as congregation president.

Q. What is the Town of Annetta’s biggest problem and how can you help solve it?

Water will likely always be on the short list of major concerns facing not only Annetta, but our entire area. We need to ensure that all of Annetta’s residents continue to have access to sufficient water supplies, and that the town’s water system is maintained and upgraded to meet the future needs of the town. All of us need to be mindful that clean water is a limited resource. As our area continues to grow in population, we will need to work together to find ways to conserve our water resources.

Q. What makes you the best candidate for town council?

I have worked as part of a number of boards and committees to help make decisions that affect a larger number of people. I have always sought out the best information before making a decision, and I am experienced in working with groups made up of individuals holding differing opinions. I value everyone’s input and try to keep an open mind when considering differing opinions and options.

Q. What steps should be taken to make Annetta the best that it can be?

Annetta is a great place to live. I would like to see the town do a better job of keeping the residents informed of what is going on. This can be done by reinstating the town council meeting minutes on the town website and by making better use of the the town facebook page to share information. As Annetta continues to grow, I would like to see more events that bring the residents of Annetta together. I think we can look at some of the towns around us and learn from some of the community-building activities that we see taking place.
