Q&A: Race for Annetta mayor

(Continued)

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.

Name: Bruce Pinckard

Age: 46

Occupation: management

Family: married to Denneen, 18 years; three children in the Aledo ISD.

How long resided in city: 14 years, 10 months.

Community involvement: active member of First Baptist Church Aledo, Annetta City Council since 2005.

What are the three most important issues the city is facing? How do you plan to address those?

Fair and honest representation of all the citizens of Annetta and fair treatment of the customers Annetta serves through the water and sewer system. I work to inform and involve more citizens every chance I get. I believe in personal responsibility and leadership that comes from listening to the citizens that we are elected to serve, understanding their concerns and making an effort to find ways that will enable all of us to walk away from each and every problem with pride knowing that we did the right thing for the town as a whole.
