Town where you live Grandview
Experience (300 characters max) I have owned a business in Grandview for 18 years and have been involved with matters of the city throughout this time. I have sat on the City Council for 4 years and feel what I have contributed has been very important to the growth of the city and the safety and welfare of its citizens.
Four years ago, the citizens of our great community provided me with the privilege of serving as a Grandview City Council Member. During this time, the City Council has worked on numerous projects. The infrastructure of our city has been a big part of the growth of Grandview. We have made great strides and completed many projects and as a City Council Member I will continue to do my part in keeping with the City’s plan for present and future grow.
The homeless population is small in our community but is still a very real problem. Having a homeless shelter in the Lower Valley would help in many respects. I feel by partnering with other agency’s in our community and neighboring communities we can help work on what it would take to get a shelter.
Our Senior Citizens are the history of our community and are highly respected. We have a thriving Senior Center that offers daily lunches to our Senior citizens as well as activities for them to participate in. We depend on the input of our Senior population for advice and help.
The subject of legal and Illegal immigration is a very important issue in todays society. I believe in equal rights for all citizens but also realize that the federal government has changed some of the provisions for the handling of our immigrants. We are a Nation built on laws and I feel that we also need to respect the laws of our country so therefore, the cities and states must abide by the law in the handling of our immigrants.
The City of Grandview as well as other great cities in our nation have always endeavored to get and keep businesses who thrive in our community. I feel that with the great leadership in our community that we have positioned ourselves to have some great business growth. I feel that the infrastructure is in place and we are reaping reliable results from the challenging work of our city council. As a member of the city council I am proud of the progress that we have made in this area and look forward to further growth.
We have many issues that we face daily in the Cities around our great nation, there is no one issue more important than another. I was raised in this community and have a very large stake in the comfort and security of all the residents of Grandview. As a member of the City Council it is the responsibility of each of us to ensure the success of our city and its future. My continued hope for the growth of Grandview is deeply seeded in my commitment to the people of our great city. I feel that with the knowledge and experience that I have acquired in the past 4 years as a City Council Member, I am prepared for the next 4 years to continue in the position of Grandview City Council Position 3.
Working with the Mayor is part of the team work that we each have a responsibility to maintain. Grandview City Council is well aware of the importance for each of us to work in unison with the Mayor. Without the success of the Mayor and each one of the Council Members the job of running the city would be in disarray. Our city runs as well as any that I have seen and I feel that the reason for this is the team work that is prevalent among all who are involved with the decision making.
