To the editor:
I have had the great honor of representing Nevada’s 3rd Ward on the City Council for the past four years. In this time, the council has made key decisions that will set Nevada up well for decades of growth and progress. Nevada has nothing but increasing opportunity on the horizon and it is vital that my friends and neighbors select a mayor that will provide the leadership and guidance necessary to ensure continued success. Lynn Lathrop is the right choice for Nevada.
Mr. Lathrop has been a steady presence at City Council meetings and is well versed on current issues facing the city of Nevada. Lynn understands the importance of economic development. It is critical that Nevada continues to support current industrial business partners such as ALMACO, Burke and our West Industrial Park so that they can expand their businesses and bring new jobs to the community. Lynn is also the leader Nevada needs to continue to recruit new industry in the footsteps of Lincolnway Energy and DuPont. It is through these large employers that Nevada’s commercial sector, school district, city departments and residential areas will gain the resources necessary to maintain this vibrant community that we all love and call home.
Lynn is the steward that Nevada requires to continue on the path of fiscal responsibility. Our tax levy has remained unchanged for decades, the state auditor continues to give the city strong reviews and we enjoy a top notch bond rating, all thanks to a long history of strong fiscal management. Lynn’s professional background managing departments, developing budgets and long-term goal setting uniquely qualifies him for the office of major.
Most importantly, Lynn is a wonderful person and active volunteer in the community. His love and dedication for Nevada is evident. Lynn’s approachable and friendly demeanor have allowed him to make deep and lasting connections with the residents and community groups of Nevada. Please join me in voting for Lynn Lathrop for mayor on Nov. 7!
