City leaders should be accessible to all in our community. I’m sure all our City Council members understand and agree with this statement. Our mayor needs to serve this community and everyone in it.
As mayor, I will look at re-establishing a Mayor’s Youth Council to invite young people to share their views and insights and help develop and implement changes or programs that may be identified. Similar councils can be created with our seniors and other groups that have needs and ideas that should be heard.
You will still see me at Hy-Vee, at St. Paul’s, at the library, and all around town. Please don’t be afraid to say hello and share an idea or concern with me. A mayor’s role is to serve you. As mayor, I will welcome your input.
