My Dear Novi Friends:
Political strife, conflict and extremism continues to be part of our daily lives, especially at the National level in Washington D.C.
That’s not what I’m about.
And, most importantly, that’s not what our great City of Novi is all about.
I am proud to report that I have stayed “above the fray” as I continue to focus on improving the quality-of-life for Novi residents.
I am a Uniter. I truly dislike partisan politics. The difficult struggles – and anger – should not be part of what we’re trying to accomplish in the great City of Novi.
That’s one of my messages to you – our wonderful and dedicated Novi residents – as I announce my intent to seek a sixth, 2-year term as your Mayor at the general election in November.
As you know, the Novi mayoral seat is a non-partisan elected position. That’s why I will stay laser-focused on making decisions that will make life easier YOU – not for any specific political party.
While I have been your Mayor, the City of Novi has benefited from strong residential property values…we’ve reduced your tax rates TWICE…we’ve added hundreds of million in commercial development…we’ve received a AAA bond rating…we’ve added police and fire resources…and we’ve committed millions of dollars to improve roads, sidewalks and pathways.
And we’ve accomplish all these things while suffering through one of the world’s worst pandemics (COVID-19) in 2020.
Novi is truly a destination city! Money Magazine named the City of Novi the No. 1 Community in the State of Michigan in 2018, according to its annual “Best Places to Live” rankings.
I love this city. We’ve got wonderful people on City Council – making important (and correct) policy decisions that help make Novi the greatest city in the state. Novi’s never been in better shape under my Leadership! I feel engaged, energetic, excited, optimistic and full of promise as I enter this year’s general election on November 2.
I can’t wait to lead this great city and to serve Novi citizens for two more years. Novi has a great future, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.
Please don’t forget to vote on NOVEMBER 2. I deeply appreciated your continuous support.
Thank you for letting me help keep the momentum going!
Mayor, City of Novi
