In announcing my candidacy for reelection for a second full term, I pledge once again to do my utmost to maintain the dignity of the office and the thoughtful consideration of views opposite my own. In a democracy such as ours, each of us has a voice, but we all must support the decisions of our institution.
Now that most of my term has passed, I must say that it has been my distinct honor and privilege to have served the citizens of Peachtree City, our town. Yes, it is still OUR town, and I will continue seeking input from all. Whether on the cart paths, over coffee, or at public gatherings, I will continue to make myself available to all the citizens of our town.
We each have a vision for where we would like our town to be some 20-plus years down the road. Allow me to again share a bit of mine.
Peachtree City simply must continue as the premier location for individuals and businesses relocating to the southern crescent of Atlanta. We must continue to place quality of life issues at the fore of the business of running our town.
Peachtree City’s appearance, its lifestyle, and relatively low cost of living are what brought us here, and it is what keeps us here. We must continue to welcome new business interests while maintaining a climate of cooperation with those present to facilitate their growth.
Much has been done over the past four years even with some major challenges, but both citizens and government came together, and Peachtree City is a better place for our efforts. Our new spillway, MacDuff Parkway completion, the skatepark, Drake Field, and our new splash park at Glenloch are examples of what working together can accomplish.
We still have challenges and work yet to be done, but I remain confident that we can make our home the envy of Metro Atlanta. Together we have made a difference. Let’s not stop now. Thank you.
