This year, our election ballots offer a full range of candidates and offices to consider from the White House in Washington to City Hall right here in Bangor. As budgets tighten at the federal and state level, so does it at the municipal level. With it comes the need for clear vision, leadership and responsibility for the future of our city.
In the City Council election, there are three candidates on the ballot who deserve your consideration. Andrew Sturgeon brings a proven background of fiscal responsibility, vision, leadership and an entrepreneurial spirit to the race. Richard Bronson impresses me with his strong combination of private sector-public sector experience and a desire to help shape the economic future of Bangor. David Nealley brings budget hawk mentality, a vision for expanding Bangor’s tax base and clear understanding of how to get things done for the residents of Bangor.
Our actions in this election will bring new councilors to serve for the next three years. As the city deals with issues of major financial consideration, we will be best served by those who have the skills, experience and track record to make the right decisions for the taxpayers of Bangor.
I encourage you to join me in voting for Andy Sturgeon, Richard Bronson and David Nealley for Bangor City Council.
