Mayor Nehring listens, cares | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

When Dennis Kendall retired mid-term as mayor in 2010 and was replaced by Jon Nehring, our city was quite fortunate. He served nine years on the City Council of Marysville and is very knowledgeable of the work to be done.

When Dennis Kendall retired mid-term as mayor in 2010 and was replaced by Jon Nehring, our city was quite fortunate. He served nine years on the City Council of Marysville and is very knowledgeable of the work to be done.

In my view, I just want to acknowledge that Jon stepped into a difficult economic situation with grace and excellent listening skills. By making hard decisions, he has managed to stabilize the city financially with as little impact as possible to city services and programs.

Now that is the kind of mayor that Marysville needs to retain.

His accomplishments are many: the financial situation due to his hard work; sidewalks and road improvements; we have better police protection; and getting volunteers to help clean up the graffiti in the city plus the unkempt yards, so as to improve the beauty of our city.

One thing that truly upsets me is that people don’t acknowledge that due to some local, state and even federal laws, our mayor’s hands are tied. When it comes to existing policies, he is not to blame. (For instance, think “bikini baristas.”)

However, if you want a mayor who listens and cares, and can affect positive change, Jon is your man. Many thanks for all that you’ve done, Jon Nehring, and I hope you win the election.
