To the editor:
I thank Rosemount residents for allowing me to continue to serve them on City Council. I continue to be appreciative and humbled by their support to serve on their behalf.
Four years ago, enough voters believed in my leadership, civic service and vision for Rosemount. Over the past four years, working with the other council members, we have set goals and strategies that maintained our services, provided new amenities and seen a return of economic growth while being fiscally responsible with tax dollars. Having voters’ support and being re-elected confirms we are going in the right direction as a city.
One of the initiatives I supported was updating our city of Rosemount website by changing its operating platform and allowing for a broader spectrum of use. Looking forward, we continue to have many opportunities with this website to keep residents aware of community happenings, relevant information for their use and the ability to communicate with staff and council members.
In January, the new City Council will review and update goals as well as move forward on strategies for the benefit of our city and our residents. Residents can have an impact by offering suggestions and comments through the website or directly to any of the council members.
While door knocking this past election season, residents expressed what they liked and what they did not. Many said they had not shared their views with the city and staff. Please consider sharing thoughts through the new website or directly to council members. I look forward to hearing from residents during the next four years. I am available at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, I thank residents for their support.
Rosemount City Council member
