To my supporters, I appreciate your support and faith in my abilities to represent you on our city council, and also extend thanks to The Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Republican Party and Galt Police Officers Association for their endorsements.

I have been involved with our city since 1986, first as a planning commissioner, when we put our northeast area plan together, then as chairman of the General Plan Committee along with being on the Gora Aquatic Center Planning Committee and Master Park Plan Committee. In addition, I was involved with the planning of both Raley's and Save-Mart shopping centers.

Appointed to the Sacramento County Environmental Commission, I represented 45 percent of the population of our county and was chairman when the commission created our current restaurant inspection, food preparation and grading program. I was on the city council when we created the reserve policy that is carrying us through this recession, and was the council member who championed our sexual predator ordinance and "Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25" signs you see in your neighborhoods.

To candidates in this election, I take my hat off to everyone who took the personal "risk" of running for city council. As everyone who ran knows, it is not an easy thing to do, but ends up being educational, personally fulfilling and exhausting.

To our new council, I'm sure you will work well together. I would like to suggest a few priorities. The Northeast Area Plan always envisioned Carillion Boulevard connecting with a new C Street overpass. I would suggest taking a real hard look in finding solutions to do that in the next three to five years. It would also be a good idea to review the city's business fees to try and position Galt to take full advantage of both completion of C Street overpass and economic recovery forecast to occur at the same time.

Finally, it has been quite a run where I did my homework, dug into the issues and always made the best decision for our city with the choices we had. Again, I thank everyone for their support.
