RICK WILLIAMS – 8,117 (53.33%) KEVIN McGRAIL – 7102 (46.67%)
MY MESSAGE TO VOTERS:
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY. I don’t like the new tax on electricity. Like you, I have to live within a certain budget. I have to watch my expenditures and manage my resources. I am a pro-growth, fiscal conservative and know that high taxes DEFEAT growth. I will seek to repeal this tax and generally keep taxes lower. We need to address our future through smarter management, budget restraint, and economic growth.
EXPERIENCE. I’ve spent nearly 10 years working with city and county government leaders and the community in planning, zoning, water quality management, and commercial building standards. I am skilled at bringing people together to work for a common good. I am nonpartisan with conservative views and will seek common ground in all issues that come before City Council.
COMMUNITY ACTIVIST. As an original stakeholder on the Ceitus Barrier issue, I am very knowledgeable in environmental and water quality issues. I worked to rectify the damage done by others and stopped Lee County’s lawsuit against Cape Coral. I will work FULL-time for you and will greatly expand citizen participation in local government. I want to draw upon your vast knowledge and expertise as we deliberate critical issues together.
MY POSITIONS ON SPECIFIC ISSUES:
LOWER taxes on families and businesses
TIGHTER controls on spending
SMARTER management of our infrastructure
MORE effective city operations
MORE professionalism and respect for our city
