Soller: I will hold to my campaign promise of open transparent government

Posted

Hello Apache Junction residents, as your newly elected Apache Junction council member, I would like to thank all the Apache Junction residents who took time to vote during this election.

We had four great candidates running for three council seats and it’s unfortunate all four of us could not be seated on council.

I’m proud and honored to have been elected to represent and be the voice for you, our residents. I will do my best to work with the mayor, council members, city manager and his staff to help keep our town’s western heritage while controlling the new growth to ensure it fits our needs.

I want to start working on the city’s Economic Development Strategic Plan to start improving our downtown area while looking at business recruitment, workforce development, livability for residence and promoting tourism to our town.

I will hold true to my campaign promise of open transparent government, keeping the history and small-town feel, supporting small business and local entrepreneurs, preserving horse property, encouraging dark skies policies and open spaces. I will also keep a close eye on our natural resources (mainly water), work on flood control and move our city forward during this time of growth.

It was unfortunate what our Pinal County residents and candidates had to go through with the primary election problems. This will not affect the city election but I hope the county will have all of these problems worked out by the general election in November.

In closing, I need to thank my wife Nita, along with family and friends who supported me on this journey. Without their help and support I would never have been able to get everything accomplished to run for this important position for our town. Finally, I would like to thank all the people who supported, trusted and honored me with their vote. I look forward to working for all of you to make our city everything we as a community want it to be.
