To the editor:

Who do you want representing you on city council for the next four years?

I live in the Central Ward, and will be voting for Arlene Buetow.

Unlike her opponent, Arlene brings many years of hands-on experience to the position, including volunteer service on the city’s Utility Advisory Committee. It’s this critical experience, in addition to her passion to get things right, that’ll give her a running start when taking office.

Her extensive hands-on business and community experience ranges from utilities to land use, residential construction, permitting and mitigation issues. Impressively, Arlene has been an advocate for making city services and operations more understandable to the public.

Over the next four years the council will be making many difficult decisions to meet vital community needs. Experience and proven leadership will be critical. Arlene has both and will not close her eyes to any continuing waste of our tax dollars.

Arlene has the necessary hands-on experience to hit the ground running. She’s proven herself fully capable of making the right decisions — decisions that end up benefiting the entire community. With Arlene, the community will have an advocate on their side who makes common sense policy choices on behalf of the entire community.

Pragmatic, tenacious and resourceful. That’s Arlene Buetow. Arlene has my vote.
