My years of council experience have prepared me in many ways to effectively lead in a non-partisan, common sense, taxpayer/community-focused manner.  A leader will listen to all sides of an issue and discuss the issues from all perspectives (pros and cons), while remaining focused on the impacts those decisions make on taxpayers. The City Council and the taxpayers should work together having equal seats at the table where opinions can be heard in a respecful manner. At those times when controversy arises good leaders work to find compromise both sides can support. Please vote Matt Lehman for Mayor!
