I have known Mayor Skip Priest for 20-plus years and believe in his integrity. He has a long history of leadership in our community and his experience has made it possible for him to meet some extraordinary challenges.
He did what he said he would do — take on two positions, that of mayor and city administrator —and made the hard decisions to balance the budget. Mayor Priest kept our city solvent while other cities around us still struggle with deficits.
He has expanded the city's Safe City program into our neighborhoods so that homeowners are now partners with the city in keeping their neighborhood streets safer from crime.
I trust Mayor Priest's judgment and believe he a strong mayor. I urge you to re-elect Mayor Skip Priest.
