Name: Ray Haseley
Occupation: Retired Sales Engineer
Education: High School
Political Affiliation: Republican
Office Sought: Ward 2 City Council
Previous Political Office Sought or Held: Ward 2 Council for 14 years; Council President six years; Acting Mayor 7 1/2 months
Candidate Statement: We are entering a period when we will not have $1.5 million from the state, and still will be expected to get everything done, and that is not the time for "on-the-job training." We must have experienced leadership -- I provide that!
Also, we have 500 acres of industrial land that needs to be developed, and I will continue to work in that committee to accomplish this. I don't take credit for any of this, but my fingerprints are all over it.
Mostly, with all the new people we have on council already, we need to keep the experienced councilmen to help guide the new ones -- with all the important committees I chair or represent, along with Planning Commission and others.
