OPINION: Eller exhibits real-world experience, skills needed for City Council
As a former City Assessor for the City of Ypsilanti, I understand City Hall and the fiscal challenges we are facing. Revenue-only solutions (i.e. higher taxes), unanimously supported by our current council representatives, are not the answer.
We need new management, with new ideas, to keep property taxes in check while still delivering core services. Mike Eller, candidate for City Council in Ward 3, is the right man for the job.
Mike is a businessman, local employer, and city investor, who has the skills and real-world experience to guide our city through difficult times. I have worked closely with Mike, in my capacity as a public servant, and have found his friendly but no-nonsense business style refreshing and effective. Mike was instrumental in defeating the recent proposal to hike city taxes, and would continue to put the interests of city residents first if elected to Council.
I endorse and support Mike Eller for City Council. He has drive. He has enthusiasm. He is the only choice for a new direction. Please vote for Mike Eller on Tuesday, August 7.
