Candidate seeks support in Campbell

DEAR EDITOR:

I am seeking Campbell residents’ votes for the office of Council President. I was born and raised in Campbell. I have been married to my wife, Chris for 21 years and between the two of us, we have four sons and nine grandchildren. I retired from GM after 30 years. I fully support our military, police and fire. I am a firm believer in the Patriot Act, and that when one of our employees is deployed, when he/she returns, their job is still here in the exact capacity it was when they were called upon. We show gratitude and not punishment for them.

As Council President my vision is: Cleaning up all major streets that lead into the city. There are many eyesores that need to be addressed; to find a way to utilize the Brownfields that have been sitting dormant for too many years; to contact the proper agency to have the rundown, unoccupied company homes on Robinson removed from historical rosters and to see those that are beyond uninhabitable and repair get removed; to have the park upkeep return to Campbell employees and to be maintained by seasonal employees that reside in the city and take pride in our park. It hasn’t been the same beautiful park it once was since it was subbed out.

My vision also is to take care of our safety forces and maintain proper staffing, to bring back Civil Service exams, to ensure there is room for advancement so that we keep our employees here so they don’t have to seek job opportunities in other communities to advance; and to return to Civil Service exams for all departments.

I would like to see a social platform for ALL city residents to be informed on what is being proposed, how tax dollars are being spent and how their council person voted to keep the community informed on what is going on in their city, so they can hold elected officials accountable, including myself.

I will be a voice for citizens and employees that I seek to represent for the betterment of our city.

If I am given the honor of representing Campbell on election day, I give my word I will do my best to bring positive light back to our city. Once a devil always a devil.

Thank you for your consideration.
