The May 21 Taylor General Election will give voters the choice between Councilman Alan Ramage and Lynn DeWitt for the final open seat on the town council. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Taylor Town Hall.
Both candidates were asked to provide a statement. DeWitt chose not to. Ramage’s statement follows.
I would like to thank those community members who supported me in the primary. I feel very grateful to have received enough votes to be in the runoff to represent the town as a council member.
I have represented the town the last couple years, and I have tried to be an active community member the past 11 years.
I may not always be liked, but I hope I can be respected for past decisions I have made as a council member. Recently there have been some decisions made which were tough. I fought just recently for a guy who I felt had all the qualifications to be a successful town manager, Gus Lundberg. It wasn’t popular, but I felt I took a stand for what the community needed.
I think the town is headed in the right direction, and the Town of Taylor needs someone who will fight for what is right, even if it isn’t popular. I would like the opportunity to continue to help make this town a place I can continue to raise my family in, as I have the last 11 years.
I am a member of the Snowflake-Taylor Chamber of Commerce Board, which focuses on small business growth. Small business growth is what’s going to save this community and this country. I am a member of the Snowflake-Taylor Tourism Committee.
I would appreciate your vote on May 21.
