With the election upon us, and Folsom’s future at stake, the candidates vying for 2 seats on the Folsom City Council, were given the opportunity to reach out to voters via MyFolsom.com. Incumbent Jeff Starsky, along with challengers Roger Gaylord and Chad Vander Veen have answered the call. As of now, neither incumbent Ernie Sheldon nor challenger Rob Ross have replied.
Here are their statements, the order of which was chosen at random:
As your representative on the Folsom City Council for the last sixteen years, your former Mayor, and most importantly, your neighbor for the last 32 years, I am asking for your vote to let me continue to serve you and keep Folsom a vibrant, prosperous and great place to live, work and play. I know governmental processes and continue to work to improve efficiencies in the City’s systems to deliver cost-effective services to our residents.
With top rated schools, clean, safe streets and parks, and lots of fun stuff to do, Folsom consistently ranks on ‘best of’ lists from a variety of publications.
The latest is Wallethub’s survey of cities in California, ranking Folsom number 1, as the best place to raise a family.
We have miles of biking/hiking nature trails, two lakes, a beautiful historic district, and great park and recreation programming.
Folsom real estate is affordable, and being close to Sacramento and half-way between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, our location is fantastic.
Take it from Wallethub, and from us Folsomites, Folsom is a great place to live.
