Former Springville trustee endorses three candidates
Monday February 24, 2014 | By:Gerald Lohrey |
As previously announced in the Springville Journal, I have decided not to seek re-election as village trustee, in the upcoming election. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve with Mayor Bill Krebs and the present board, as well as with former Deputy Mayor/trustee Jean Moncreiff and former trustee Jim Bentley.
I want to thank the residents of Springville for putting their trust in me to represent them, over the past four years. I took that responsibility very seriously and always did what I thought was best for the village and its residents. I always took into consideration the communications that I received from my constituents, when acting on their behalf. And I am proud to have had the opportunity to be part of the progress that has taken place in Springville, in the recent past. It has been an enlightening experience as I saw, from a totally different perspective, what is involved in running a village. The dedicated and experienced village employees keep things running smoothly, as they go about their daily duties. It has been a pleasure to work in conjunction with them.
This is an important time in the village, as many projects and programs are progressing and coming to fruition. However, there is still much to be done. With that in mind, I strongly support the Citizen Voice Candidates in the upcoming election on March 18, 2014 and I ask you to support them, as well. Mayor Bill Krebs and Trustee Terry Skelton are running for re-election to their present positions. While working with them during my tenure as trustee, I have seen firsthand that they are both dedicated to keeping Springville moving forward. Robert Laskowski is seeking election as trustee. Bob has been active in various capacities, with several area organizations. He has served on the board of Springville Youth Incorporated and also served as board president. He is currently president of the board of directors of the Children’s League, formerly The League for the Handicapped, and is also involved in other civic organizations. I truly believe that these candidates are the best choices to keep Springville on track in the future. Financially, the village is in excellent shape, as has been confirmed by recent audits. To keep Springville moving forward, it is imperative that we keep a fiscally responsible board in place and it is important that our representatives have what is best for Springville in mind, while harboring no personal agenda. Bill, Terry and Bob fit the bill perfectly.
I sincerely ask you to join with me in voting for William (Bill) Krebs for Mayor and Terry Skelton and Robert (Bob) Laskowski for Trustees on Tuesday, March 18. Thank you!
