Eastside residents got their first piece of political mail this week in the contested County Council District 22 race.
It was from business leader Stacy Kuper, who is running against Rick Roberts and Lance Byars for the seat being vacated by Jim Burns. The oversized mailer touts Kuper’s leadership background as well as her plan for the community.
From the mailer:
Create an Area Master Plan for District 21 that allows us to grow proactively and not reactively.
Utilize new and existing technology to better solve the traffic problems that plague the Eastside.
Work together to add trails and parks to our communities.
Strike a fair balance between the taxes that are assessed on real property and those collected from sales tax.
Add transparency and accountability to our business development processes by increasing communication between County Council, the community and developers early on.
Provide incentives such as effective infrastructure and affordable, economic property values to create more business opportunities.
Put together a coalition of community leaders to develop a website specifically targeted to the people of District 21.
Listen and be accountable.
While we have been hearing a lot of talk and rumors in this campaign, this is the first major overt political action in the campaign. We are sure it won’t be the last.
