I am writing to express my support for the re-election of Bruce Jeffers as at-large representative to Bowling Green City Council. It has been my great pleasure to serve along with Bruce during his eight-year tenure on City Council.
During this time, Bruce has proven to be a dedicated and hardworking representative for the entire Bowling Green community. Bruce has been a consistent advocate and supporter of the city’s efforts to enrich its sustainable energy portfolio, and he voted to enable the construction of our solar field, which is currently the largest in the state of Ohio.
Bruce has been a strong guiding voice as the city has considered issues and opportunities related to planning, land use and neighborhood revitalization, demonstrating the vision and patience required to consider these critical, long-range issues. Bruce has also been a leader in the development of the city’s Welcome BG initiative. This process, which is intended to build on council’s resolution designating Bowling Green as welcoming city, provides exciting opportunities to supplement our local work force, a critical need as we continue to develop our business community.
Bruce has served on council’s municipal utility committee and the planning and zoning committee, and he is the current chairman of the finance committee. He has demonstrated the ability to grasp the many complicated issues and activities that these committees assume responsibility for. It is my strong opinion that the sum of Bruce’s experience and demonstrated leadership qualities makes him the clear choice to continue to serve the citizens of Bowling Green as an at-large representative.
I hope you will join me in voting for Bruce Jeffers on May 7.
