ABOVE THE FRAY!
My Dear Novi Friends:
During a time in our history when political strife and conflict has become part of our daily lives, 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 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 great Novi residents – as I announce my intent to seek a fifth, 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 had a very strong recovery in residential property values…we’ve reduced your tax rates TWICE…we’ve added hundreds of millions of dollars 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.
Novi is truly a destination city! Money Magazine just named the City of Novi the No. 1 Community in the State of Michigan, according to its annual “Best Places to Live” rankings.
I love this city. We’ve got wonderful people on City Council – making the 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 5. 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 5. I deeply appreciated your continuous support.
Thank you for letting me help keep the momentum going!
Mayor, City of Novi
