To be a good leader, I believe you must have a servant’s heart, be a good listener and live a life of humility. The citizens of Gilbert care about the future of our town. We want to trust the leadership in Gilbert to be fiscally responsible with our taxes and provide us the quality of services that make our community vibrant and safe. My successful run for Town Council in March 2011 was an extension of those who live, work and play in Gilbert who want to see transformation of the leadership in the current Town Council.
As the General Election approaches, I want to encourage the voters in Gilbert to elect Jordan Ray and Victor Petersen to Gilbert Town Council. Both men will fight against unnecessary tax increases that will hurt Gilbert families and business in our economically challenging times. Ray and Petersen will work hard to help the Town become more “Business Friendly” so that businesses can expand and provide additional jobs in Gilbert. These candidates are committed to being fiscally responsible stewards of the taxpayer’s money. They will ensure that the most important resources in Gilbert like Public Safety and Public Works are funded first.
I ask you to join me in voting for Jordan Ray and Victor Petersen to help ensure Gilbert stays pro-family, pro-business, and that public safety is funded with the first dollars so that we can continue to be the greatest town in Arizona. Let us continue to promote a culture of service as the Town partners with Gilbert families and businesses. Together we will continue to uphold and promote the values of caring, fairness, responsibility, respect, trustworthiness and citizenship that make Gilbert great.
Thank you for allowing me to publicly serve our community. I am very honored and humbled.
Councilmember-Elect Eddie Cook
