Your Opinion: Vantage points converge on clear benefits

January 31st, 2012 by Alan Mudd Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

We are fortunate to live in a community that has a history of supporting important endeavors. My experience in Jefferson City is that when people see ballot issues that will help keep our community strong and vibrant, they cast a yes vote knowing that it is an investment.

Such is the case with the upcoming Transform Jefferson City vote. Like many others, I have fully reviewed the projects our community will see with the passage of this issue, and it is clear that we will all benefit.

Transform Jefferson City will strengthen our economy, create additional jobs, and make our city even more appealing for those who live here, and for those who are considering making our community their new home. I see Jefferson City from many different vantage points: businessman, school board member and former teacher, but most importantly, I see it as a caring citizen and a family man.

I am convinced that the Transform issue will allow our community to take important steps to make us an attractive location for new businesses and an even better place to raise our families.

Please join me in voting yes on the Transform Jefferson City ballot issue.
