Hosea announces candidacy for Mayor

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

A little history about me. I am a local heating and air conditioning contractor, that, over the years, has worked for the mines and our local private sector businesses, such as Kearny Automotive and Phelps Ford.

These businesses have now become a part of our past. As an employee and, later, as an owner/employer, I have witnessed the struggles and unique challenges that small business in a small town face. The issues of economy, taxes, utilities, licenses fees and the list goes on. As the pastor of our local church, I have witnessed the economic hardships of our senior citizens and retirees, who comprise a large portion of our population. These are citizens that feel the impact of every utility increase or tax hike.

I am not naive to the challenges Kearny faces, finding the balance between economic resources, ever-increasing operational costs, as well as the ever-increasing need to invest in our children, young adults and the family structure, as these are the future and longevity of Kearny. I have lived in the Kearny area most of my life. I love Kearny and I live here, and have raised my family here by choice; because, Kearny is a really great place to live.

I am asking the citizens of Kearny for the opportunity to serve them as their Mayor. I am planning on releasing a DVD, by the end of the week, that will explain more of my vision for Kearny. In the DVD, I will cover topics such as: 1. The wonderful changes in our city management, and the great position this has placed us in. 2. Accountability to the people. 3. Our lake. 4. Transparency, compliance with the sunshine laws. 5. Public service excellence / law enforcement 6. Training for our employees. 8. Encouraging new businesses, preserving our current businesses. 9. Responsibilities of the Mayor and Council. 10. Grant issues, project sustainability and maintenance 11. Ambulance and fire funds. 12. Accountability of contractors, limiting the use of contractors, for work that should be performed in house. 13. A full performance evaluation of past contractors; what are we getting for our money. Early ballots will be out this week. Please watch my DVD; then, make the choice you feel is appropriate.

I am asking you to allow me the privilege to serve you the next two years, and, if you find my services less than satisfactory, then, by all means vote me out./s/ James Hosea
