Balancing accountability with positive feedback
I believe the most precious resource in a small community like Weyauwega is people – people who lead, people who volunteer, people who serve in government and people who move here to work for our public institutions.
We have an outstanding slate of people who have served this community, and, as result, our small town has a quality of life that offers something special in comparison to larger communities.
As a councilperson, I am most concerned about preserving the investment we have made in recruiting and retaining city staff.
I am confident that the services we have contracted with outside consultants have brought us some excellent employees.
I believe it’s been well worth the expense.
Now, we need to focus on being a community and a city government where we put our best foot forward to be the kind of community they will want to continue to live in.
So, I would encourage citizens to vote Tuesday for the candidates they feel would be the best at employee relations – the ones who can balance accountability and positive feedback.
That will be my top priority.
Don’t forget to vote.
