EDWARD WOJDYLA (R), Dist. 3

I am running for re-election to the council. I believe that the coming years will bring challenges for our county and we will have to respond in the most efficient ways possible, and I believe that my experience and background can support our meeting of those challenges.

I believe in keeping government as small as possible with the following priorities:

1) Provide for our common protection and safety;

2) Provide for common rules by which we minimize and resolve conflict among our citizens;

3) Support those who will become our future, our youth, with opportunities to grow into contributing citizens so that as we age we can rely on them to carry on;

4) Support those, our elders, whose hard work and dedication provided us with the best place for which to pursue our dreams, by respecting their value and aiding them where necessary while reaping the benefits of their knowledge

I believe that this country’s greatest asset is its diversity. Diversity in every aspect of the human condition is essential to our past, present and future success. Diversity, when embraced, provides a wide range of opinions from which we can chose the best future possible for all.

I do not believe that the role of government is to subsidize business, nor is it to do for the individual that which the individual is best suited to do for oneself. I do believe that those of us who are blessed and enjoy our freedom and our prosperity owe a debt of honor to those who went before us, and believe that the best way we can pay it forward is through community service.

We are at a crossroads. The above are my beliefs by which I endeavor to live my life. None of us always makes the best decisions, or even the most popular decisions, but if one lives one’s life by solid principles, ultimately one makes more good decisions. I bring to this role a mind of community service and a solid financial background. It would be an honor if you choose to select me to serve you for another four years.
