As a citizen of Great Bend it is my distinct pleasure to endorse Mayor Allison for re-election. I do so with respect for Mayor Allison’s contribution to the City of Great Bend.
His mayoralty has seen the City of Great Bend’s mill levy remain essentially stable while other governmental entities have experienced significant mill levy increases. Yet, despite that degree of fiscal prudence the city has demonstrated significant and positive energy. The City has built a ball complex for our young families to enjoy, improved traffic on Tenth Street for us all, is taking a considered look at how we utilize the convention center into the future, begun consideration as to how we can in a family friendly fashion develop the Stone Lake portion of town, improved the zoo and done many other projects all for the improvement of our community.
While the issues facing the City are significant I have no question as to the Mayor’s ability to continue to serve us. I ask that you vote for him.
