I would like to thank the voters of Peachtree City for the vote of confidence in electing me the next mayor of Peachtree City.
There is a lot to do to get our priorities, budget and more in line with what the citizens want and our wallets can afford. I believe the voters have elected a mayor and council ready to get the job done.
Several of the goals I stated in the election cycle are already in work. We will have better communications via a website forum, Internet streaming of meetings and creating an online video archive along with staff talking to Comcast about televising meetings.
A more efficient use of hotel/motel tax as well is in work. Ordinance changes I could not get done the last year are again moving forward, including removal of the big box special use permit.
Those are just a few of the efforts under way.
Looking back on the first 50 years, let us all learn and work together to make the next 50 years even better. Yes, there is a lot to do, but it is worth the effort.
Again, thank you for electing me your ninth mayor and for electing a council I look forward to working with in the future.
Peachtree City, Ga.
