Randy Myers has announced his candidacy for the Fourth Ward Great Bend City Council seat.
“I have served the people of the fourth ward for many years now and I believe that I have served the interests of my constituents well,” he said. “Many of you know me and you know that I will continue to represent you fairly and that I answer your calls and I address your concerns. I want to apologize for not getting signed up to run this time and I ask you to support me as a write in vote. I am the assistant manager of the new Great Bend Ace Hardware store and we have been working long hours and a lot of seven day weeks to be the best we can be. I was absorbed with this and I let the signup deadline pass me by and again I apologize for not getting signed up. It didn’t help that I was not reminded by anyone at the city of the approaching deadline but again my mistake. I was born and raised in Great Bend in the fourth ward and I have lived here all but five years of my life so I understand the community and the people who make this our home. Honestly we are making headway on a number of issues now and I would love to continue to be your representative on the city council. As you know I have opposition this time and she will be on the ballot and I will not so I really need you to write in my name on the ballot if you want me to continue to represent you fairly and honestly. I was married to my wife Charlotte here in Great Bend and we raised our two sons Nathan and Travis here. I will need to put signs out to remind everyone that I am running as a write in vote this time so please call me if you would like a sign. My number is 620-786-1351. I have really enjoyed being your representative these past years and I am looking forward to continuing to represent you in the future. As you know my door is always open and you can contact me anytime and I will listen to you and address your concerns. Please write in Randy Myers on the ballot for Fourth Ward City Council and I will look forward to serving you again.”
