To the residents of Buckeye,
Buckeye is my home and I have worked hard to make it a better place in which to live. I have worked as the General Manager of the Buckeye Water District, and been involved on the town council, in state legislation, worked with water, and electricity and have served on various boards, many in which I held a leadership position. I believe my leadership, experience and knowledge will serve the town of Buckeye in a positive way.
The next few years are crucial to Buckeye’s growth and recent changes in the economy have given us the opportunity to “catch up.” It is imperative that we take full advantage of this. Buckeye needs a mayor that clearly understands our past, has a vision for the future, can dedicate himself full time to the task, and can hit the ground running. I plan to hold several meetings the first few days of my term to begin the process of gaining stability, initiating commercial and industrial development into our community, and seeking ways to bring in institutions of higher education. My list of priorities will include finding ways to improve police protection, getting police officers housed or stationed within neighborhoods, and implementing community policing.
I have already met with communities on some important issues and we are moving forward. I also have the advantage of having developed the necessary relationships with various officials to help facilitate these processes. It is important that we have open government, as we are here to serve the needs of the people.
I encourage everyone to visit my web site at www.meckformayor.com and read the words of others who support my candidacy. I am humbled and appreciative of the support I have received in recent months and would appreciate your vote this coming Tuesday.
