I would like to take a few moments to share my support for Rodney Creech in the upcoming County Commission election.
Rodney has a vision and the energy to put forth the effort to make us a strong County. The best thing we have going in this County is the “people”. This is an area that Rodney shines, due to personality and a desire to see the county he lives in to become more unified and prosper. He not only can visit other villages or communities and be comfortable, he usually knows many people by name and has a positive interaction. He entrepreneurial attitude has shown in the success of “Lawn Plus”, a business started a few years as the sole employee today, to a business where clientele base is not only local but expands into other counties alike.
I have had the opportunity to first hand witness and evaluate Rodney’s drive and passion for doing things in the correct way with ability to insure his decisions are based on the “big picture”. I do believe the county needs to be progressing in a manner that follows a goal of ” Can we be better”. I also feel, in my mind, that’s the simple fundamental question I have to have answered. I believe Rodney not only the ability to do so, but, the passion to insure we attempt to continually strive to “Be Better.”
So, to be better, what does it take? Again, it takes a simple philosophy that one can live by and be entrusted by others to continually be consistent in work ethic, commitment, attention to detail, communication, clarity in expectations and possibly most of all, honesty! I feel Rodney possesses those qualities, and it is our responsibility to insure any elected official is held accountable.
I appreciate so much, all our candidates, I appreciate those who will step forward and be willing to be on the so called “firing line.” I appreciate those who currently hold positions and those in the past that will give of their time and resources to serve our county. But, I also feel, we need to continue with fresh ideas, looking at past, present and future needs with a fresh set of eyes. To present an air of accountability and challenging ideals where we all participate either in agreement or disagree agreeably.
Having a three person commission, there has to be open dialogue, open minds, communication and the ability to come to a decision that will best for the community or the county as a whole. Those in position of authority and major decision making positions must have the understanding that every decision made affects not only that community, but the county as a whole. Ultimately, we are all in this together, there are walls that have been built between county and villages, walls that hinder us to “Be Better.” Rodney has the wherewithal to tear down some of these walls and build a wall of understanding, cooperation and fortitude. Not a wall that keeps others out or away. A wall that is strong and transparent.
Rodney Creech is a candidate I would encourage each and every one of you to strongly consider as you have the opportunity to make a very important decision in the upcoming election. We can either remain with the mindset of what you expect to happen, or with the mindset of “Can We Be Better?”
