Annetta City Council – the race for Place 3

(Continued)

However, as a CPA, my concern is the finances. There needs to be an independent analysis done to look at the increase of revenues compared to the increase in expenditures this will create. The annexation would possibly double the town’s population and the increase in revenues may or may not be able to cover the increase in expenditures brought on by this.

Just an example is our roads. The town was able to budget $15,000 for roads in 2012. That will only cover a small portion of roads. The annexation will increase the number of roads in our town. I do not want to annex these folks in and then not be able to provide them with the necessary road repairs they deserve.

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

I believe my 20 years in business and sales as well as the fact that I am a CPA qualifies me for this position. I am independent and am not running in any group; therefore, you can be assured that I will not align myself with any one councilman or mayor on an issue based on who I ran the race with.  I will look at all the issues independently, collect the facts, report the truth, and vote based on what is best for the people of Annetta and not my own personal gain.

I have a strong voice and am not afraid to state my opinion. I will admit when I am wrong. I have a strong track record of negotiations and conflict management. I promise to work professionally with other members of the council and not hold disagreements personally.
