Electing a Better City Council

The Topeka Metro recently published my letter in support of Jack Woelfel for City Council.

Electing for a Better City

I gained respect for my former opponents Ann Mah and Jack Woelfel after the 2002 elections, and it's been an honor working with them ever since.

Now one of them - Jack Woelfel - is running for Topeka City Council district 9.

Topeka has a few good leaders (like John Alcala and Sylvia Ortiz) who care about our city and lead as best they can. Unfortunately some city leaders (like Blackburn and Duffy) have their own agendas and they don't care how their schemes hurt our city, as long as they get what they want.

Jack Woelfel is a man of integrity who believes in responsible government and fiscal responsibility. He has the best interests of the City and its residents at heart, and Topeka will prosper with him on the Council.

I urge you to consider your choices and elect Jack Woelfel to Topeka City Council.
