Five speak in favor of Clintonville council member’s re-election
We are classmates of Clintonville City Council member Mary-Beth Kuester and we have known her for decades.
Although not all of us live in her district or even in the city limits, Clintonville is important to us as our hometown. The fate of our city and its downtown are important to us and to our families.
When Mary-Beth returned home after a distinguished career that served national clients, we encouraged her to run for the city council after hearing her speak up at a council meeting. After serving one term, she is facing a primary election Feb. 16. We urge voters to go to the polls and keep her on the ballot in April.
When Clintonville High School awarded Mary-Beth the Alumnus Honoris award at a young age, her classmates were proud since that award originated the year we graduated.
Since returning home to live in her family home Mary-Beth has been serving the community. She was with a group who met with the county highway committee in Waupaca numerous times and succeeded in getting them to reverse an earlier decision and widen County Trunk I for the safety of all.
As her classmates, we can assure you she is smart (a merit scholar) and has the education and experience in finance and utilities to knowledgably serve on city committees. She also knows how to market and raise funds by securing grants.
Experienced in working with major business and corporations, Mary-Beth is looking out for the elderly and disadvantaged, exploring expanded weekend taxi hours for a clientele that has no alternative transportation and getting street lights turned back on. A star debater in high school, Mary-Beth now lends her voice to the voters.
Please vote for Mary-Beth in the Feb. 16 primary and again in the general election in April.
