Reader will castvote for Sokoloich
I’ve gotten to know Andy Sokolovich over the last 18 months. We’ve had good discussions about our businesses as well as the future of Clinton.
What impresses me most about Andy are his fresh ideas for making Clinton a better place to live, work and raise a family. He brings a unique perspective to the table:
• He has a fresh energy and ideas for promoting Clinton’s assets
• He is a small business owner and understands managing finances
• He has 11 years of military experience as an Air Force air traffic controller
• He understands cooperation and open dialog to move Clinton forward
I’ve been impressed with Andy’s desire to get to the root of what has turned around other cities that have been in similar situations as Clinton. He sought out leaders in those communities that were in charge when things began to turn around. He’s found that the main ingredient in every case was cooperation between the council, mayor, city economic development groups and the private sector.
Andy’s time in the military as an air traffic controller as well as running the operations of an Air Force base gave him the experience he’ll need to understand the complexities of what our city is facing. The budget needs to be balanced and services need to be performed, just like they were when he was in the Air Force and like they do in his business.
Andy Sokolovich isn’t locked into an agenda. He is committed to the best ideas and working in cooperation with others to move Clinton forward. We need people like Andy on the city council. I’m voting for Andy Sokolovich for one of the Clinton City Council at-large seats and I hope you will consider it too.
