Allen for mayor

-A A +A
By The Staff

I am writing this letter as a public endorsement of the re-election of Mayor Brenda Allen. Allen has been a wonderful mayor for this community for the last eight years and she certainly has earned an additional term of office.

During her time as mayor, she has dealt with difficult personnel issues with tact and with firmness; she has down-sized the administration of the Water Co. without losing any effectiveness of the job that the Water Co. is doing in our community; and she has maintained emergency community services through times of economic uncertainty.

Allen has obtained many improvements for the City and for water and sewer projects in the community and for the purchase of equipment for our emergency services departments by securing nearly $2.5 million in grant funding.

In short, she has been a very effective leader of the fifth largest employer in the county; she has made sure that our emergency services have remained strong and are well led; and has brought charm, friendliness and openness to her position.

Mayor Brenda Allen is a true public servant worthy of re-election on Nov. 2, and I urge your support of Mayor Allen.

Bobby J. Brooks, M.D.
