Dear Editor,

I, Stu Davis, am running for Imlay City commission for a 2nd term after serving the last 4 years. I have in those 4 years supported the police, fire, DPW, and all the other city employees. If you need a reference please ask a city employee about my record. The commission has worked well together and in spite of political differences among the members we have always considered Imlay City our top and only priority. Most problems or situations or proposals are presented and discussed and compromised with a 7 to 0 or 6 to 1 vote.

Please attend our meetings and give us your thoughts and concerns — the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

I have consistently attended the commission meetings for about 20 years and ran for a seat and won when I had been unhappy with some of the city’s decisions and spending. For instance, the gateway approach of a city welcome sign and “garden” divider on M-53 at the south side near I-69. This divider has been abandoned and the welcome sign redone for a 2nd or 3rd time. I also questioned the location of the new fire hall on the east side of M-53 which causes problems for getting in and back onto M-53. Traffic congestion on M-53 is a big concern.

I have served four years in the Air Force and attended college on the GI bill. I have worked at General Electric, Firestone, TRW, Sparton Electronics and most recently for ATI, an automotive safety development company.

I repeat, please vote for me one more time for IC Commission. I have no agenda other than to better our community and am open to all your concerns.

Thanks for your consideration,
— Stu Davis
