To the Editor:
The mayor of DeKalb has an important role in leading our city to a better future and a better quality of life.
But these are just words that can be said of any candidate who is running for public office. How these words are translated into action are what make Jerry Smith the best choice for mayor of DeKalb.
He has experience in successfully leading a business. He is very knowledgeable about our community services and the nonprofit organizations that provide critical services to those who need them.
With these two important perspectives, Jerry has workable ideas to kick-start economic development, improve safety in our community, and promote a responsive and responsible city government. He already has a 100-day plan that will guide his actions in making the changes we need to see happen in DeKalb. He is ready and he is able!
As co-chair of Jerry's campaign committee, I urge you to vote for Jerry Smith to be the next mayor of DeKalb.
