Rick Heumann is best for the City
Election Day will soon be upon us. We will be faced with a long list of decisions and choices including the race for Chandler City Council. This choice should be easy and hopefully not be overlooked because it is in the shadow of a hotly contested national election.
Two qualified incumbents are faced off against challengers with minimal credentials. The person standing far above the challengers and who has given a tremendous amount of time, effort and dedication during his first term in office is Rick Heumann. Rick has been a long time Chandler resident and an enthusiastic community volunteer. He has served on City boards and commissions which have given him history, insight and leadership experience. He is conscientious and researches issues thoroughly prior to casting a Council vote. He votes according to what he sees as best for the City and its citizens.
Rick has a tremendous work ethic which is exceeded only by his integrity and fiscal conservatism. He has a sense of responsibility to those who elected him and will continue that if he is reelected. Please join me in voting for Rick Heumann for Chandler City Council.
Heumann, Sellers are best choices
On August 6th I was one of a handful of citizens who attended the Chandler City Council debates and I was very excited to see so many enthusiastic candidates that want to work hard for our city. Council members Rick Heumann and Jack Sellers were able to best address the concerns and issues the Chandler community will be facing over the next four years, and for many years into the future. Both have worked tirelessly and relentlessly to bring new businesses, and over 9,500 jobs to Chandler. Chandler has a bright future thanks to their hard work bringing ASU and U of A here as well. Over the last four years I have had the privilege to work with both candidates directly via my involvement in humanitarian organizations and as a member of the Chandler Airport Commission.
I believe that the best way to determine what kind of job someone will do is by evaluating what kind of job they have done. Rick Heumann and Jack Sellers have proven that they are the best candidates for Chandler City Council.
