LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Thank you to the thousands who have voted for me in the past and to new supporters this year. I truly care about our citizens and city.
Your safety — supporting our great police, fire and first responders who protect and help all citizens so we can focus on other issues.
Your wallet — every year I am the one who makes the motion for the lowest tax rate for the homeowner (includes renters).
Your vehicles — roads are now being replaced, not just pothole repair, a good plan, less vehicle damage.
Your schoolchildren — children of all abilities and important educators need the state to change the outdated method of funding schools and provide more help.
Your city — continuing to receive refund costs for water treatment, with more $$$ to come, many new restaurants, bakery and small businesses this past year, and a potential large business which will give thousands in tax revenue, which could lower our tax rate.
Your neighborhood — constant frustrating traffic backups on main routes need to be addressed again.
Your activities — the many arts and sports are a positive for our city.
Your dedicated city councilor-at-large — I am the only woman councilor-at-large for eight continuous years. I haven’t missed a council meeting in eight years, even with the death of my husband.
Your Gold Star daughter — (father was a Korean War casualty) my support and care towards veterans and active duty and their families comes as I view them all as heroes.
Lastly, focusing on the good and good people in our city (while watching our dollars) helps us all as a community.
Cindy C. Harris
