This customer focus should address any unfounded concerns that, because I’m not on the water system, I wouldn’t support the system’s customers.
My independence in this race also differentiates me. Unlike my opponent, I’m not running as part of a slate of candidates. I have no agenda other than serving the citizens to the best of my ability. This frees me to listen to all sides of issues, build consensus on the council and concentrate on making the best decisions for Annetta. In short, I believe I will be better positioned to help bring unity to the council.
Finally, my opponent and I have a different approach toward the Deer Creek annexation request. My opponent’s web site states that he supports the annexation as “the right thing to do.” I strongly believe the decision to annex more than 500 homes cannot be made without having solid data, as well as giving Annetta’s residents an opportunity to be heard. It may end up being the right thing, but we don’t know that yet.
