The new ideas, creative vision, increased energy and vitality I offer are just what Winder needs right now. I offer these from the perspective of long term resident who is deeply vested in this community.
During challenging times of change, the “way we’ve always done it” no longer serves. Creative compromise, more active cooperation and more enthusiastic collaboration are needed. As a councilman, I will work to face current and future challenges in ways that may not have been considered in the past.
My pledge is to listen…think…respect…and serve the citizens of Winder in an open-minded, approachable way, and with humility. I have a servant’s heart and the ability to lead. Winder needs these things at this time.
I will also do my best to keep citizens informed on upcoming council decisions which will affect them. There is a history of decisions being made at committee meetings and work sessions without the citizens having opportunity for input. (Two recent examples are spending $58,000 on an electronic “Welcome” sign and $1.1 million on a golf course.)
Yes, citizens could attend committee meetings and work sessions, but that is an unrealistic expectation. The council needs to meet the citizens where they are, which is in the regularly scheduled meetings, rather than expecting citizens to come to various sub-meetings.
