I was elected to City Council four years ago and have been honored to serve the people of Albertville. I have been a resident of Albertville for 16 years and my wife Karen and I have raised two children, Jon (18) and Andrea (15), both who have attended STMA schools. During my time on the Council I have served on various committees, including Parks and Recreation, STMA Ice Arena Board, Public Works, FYCC, and Fire Department/Public Safety. The city of Albertville has seen great growth over the last several years and we need to elect City Council members that are prepared to look to the future. Albertville needs to be able to develop to its full potential while maintaining its small town identity. In my time on the Council, I championed the effort to change recycling vendors and switch to single sort recycling, and since this was implemented, we have seen participation rise from 46% of households to over 90%. I have also strongly supported the I-94 distributor road project, which will be completed this November. This project will not only lead to far less traffic coming through our city streets, but it will most certainly make the undeveloped land near the outlet mall more attractive for economic development. Finally, with the economy still limping along, and local government aid to Albertville being eliminated, we need to continue to keep this an affordable place to live and run a business. It hasn't been easy the last four years, but I feel we have done our best to keep taxes down without jeopardizing the essential services (fire, police, roads, etc) that our residents expect. If re-elected, I will continue to fight to make common sense decisions and keep this a safe and affordable place to raise a family. I appreciate all the input I have received from residents the past four years. I stand by my voting record and my commitment to the people. And I would appreciate your vote on November 6th.
