I would first like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the Village of Springville for allowing me to serve as your trustee for the past 6 years. I have been privileged to work with a group of individuals who truly understand the role of government and the responsibilities we have to serve all citizens.
Under the direction of Mayor Bill Krebs, our village is a place that we can all be proud of. It is a great place to live. We work very hard on the village board to provide the residents a wide variety of services while keeping our infrastructure sound. This is all accomplished through sound fiscal policies and execution of a solid master plan.
Together, we have brought grant opportunities to Main Street, have worked hard to spearhead the Rails to Trails initiative, reconstructed Franklin Street including an improved public safety building and completed Heritage Park for the enjoyment of all residents. This work is not easy. It takes a team, with a variety of perspectives and experience to adequately plan, develop and execute the vast number of initiatives that the village undertakes. I am asking for your help to keep this momentum going.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Terry Skelton for over 30 years. He is a tremendous asset to our board and to the village at large. He is thoughtful, forward thinking and is always receptive to new ideas and challenges. His experience, dedication and true affection for the people of Springville are qualities that serve our board well.
I have worked with Kim Pazzuti in her position as a board member for Springville Youth, Inc. for approximately a decade. Kim has tremendous powers of reason, understands the fiscal responsibilities that go along with being a board member and can always be counted on to make thoughtful and reasoned decisions. The same dedication and energy that she shows to her students in the classroom will carry over to the residents of our village. Kim is a proven leader.
In closing, I would ask that you go to the polls on March 20 and cast your vote for Mayor Bill Krebs and trustee candidates Kim Pazzuti and Terry Skelton. These are candidates that will push personal agendas aside and work for all residents and businesses. Vote for proven leadership and experience. Keep the momentum going forward For Springville.
