Letter to the editor: Sass has the experience we need
October 29, 2012
Please consider voting for Austin Sass for City Council. We need council members with strong fiscal experience, management skills and who will work to improve our economic woes. As former mayor and city councilwoman for eight years, I can recognize a strong leader who can and will be able to work with others to bring the necessary policy and budgetary changes we need. Austin cares about our community and has a clear understanding of the priorities we face: Improving our economy by focusing on what we do best, recreation and tourism; tackling our budget as we cannot continue to use reserves to balance every year; and focusing on bringing new business to town working with all the city departments to facilitate this goal. I guarantee Austin will not just be a seat holder, he will work for all of us, he has the time and dedication to serve. He is enthusiatic, has a good sense of humor (which is important), has some fresh ideas and is capable of building consensus. We are lucky to have a good slate of candidates this year and I give kudos to all of you who have stepped up to the plate to run for office and to the two winners, I wish you all the best!
