Fellow councilman endorses Elfers
October 11, 2011 · 1:26 PM
During my time serving with Rich Elfers, I’ve found him to be a hard-working and dedicated councilman.
Rich comes to the table well prepared on the issues at hand and it’s clear that he gives a lot of thought to his votes. He’s not afraid to offer new ideas at council meetings and can be a good catalyst for making sure we look at all sides of an issue. As chairman of the Finance Committee, he’s also taken a leadership role in bringing new ideas to our budget process and reporting methods.
When I’ve disagreed with Rich, I’ve always found him open to discussion and debate, either publicly or privately. I appreciate his ability to discuss both sides of an issue in an open-minded manner, even if we still don’t agree in the end.
I’m pleased to endorse Rich for re-election to the council. His integrity, hard work and thoughtful consideration of issues are traits that all elected officials should strive to emulate.
