10/10/2013 from The Farmington Observer:
“Galvin is on the right path for what must be done to maintain the city’s health. In particular, Galvin hit the nail on the head in his support of a permanent source of funding for the city’s capital improvements, a multi-model transportation/walking plan and an interesting urban forestry program, as well as a wi-fi system for downtown.”
Farmington has a lot of history. While on the campaign trail, Jeff & Ann McGowan shared this historic photo of their home on the corner of Flanders and Larkspur from 1960. The rest of the subdivision appears as trees in the background! Notice the original homeowner in the front window!
SEMCOG released Taxable Value projections. This emphasizes the challenges SE Michigan communities face. We are starting to recover financially. However, communities still have to climb out of a deep valley from the past five years of property taxable value decreases.
On Wednesday, September 25th the League of Women Voters Oakland County is hosting a Candidate Forum at Farmington City Hall at 7pm. http://www.lwvoa.org/candidate_forums.html I am looking forward to this event. This will be a terrific opportunity to field questions and concerns from our citizens.
Announcing the launch of my 2013 campaign for Farmington City Council. I hope you will follow the campaign, the issues, the candidates over the next several weeks leading up to Election Day on November 5th.
I will be updating this blog website periodically with updates on the issues or upcoming events.
Lastly, I am accepting assistance from volunteers! Please contact me if you would like a yard sign or would be willing to send a few postcards to your Farmington friends.
Vote for Galvin!
