I’ve known Dick Foreman for just a couple of years now. During that time, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know him personally and professionally, and I’ve had the opportunity to get to know his wife and their youngest daughter. I can honestly say that he is truly a class act.
Having a man like Dick Foreman willing to serve on a city council seat is something that doesn’t happen very often. He’s VERY qualified, he’s not a career politician, he isn’t looking for a stepping stone, and he truly cares about what is good for all of Tempe. A bipartisan approach to city government is exactly what our city needs and it is exactly how Dick Foreman operates.
The city of Tempe needs real leadership, and it needs qualified people willing to look out for the best interests of all of our citizens. We’re much more than ASU and Mill Avenue. Yes, those two are VERY important and we need people who can effectively work with them. We also need leaders who know that we’re schools and families, we are small business owners, we want parks and safety and city services to better serve all of Tempe. I urge every Tempe voter to look closely at the qualifications of each person running for our city council. Look at who has the most experience with our schools, with small and large business. Look for a candidate who has raised a family here, who has lived here, participated with many diverse groups, who has selflessly served people from all walks of life and who knows the issues important to all of the people of Tempe.
Heck, don’t just take my word for it. Do some research. Take a look at www.ForemanForTempe.com and take a look at the campaigns Facebook page for more information.
For this upcoming election, we have 7 people running for three open seats. I urge you to look closely at the candidates and to vote for the people you feel will best serve our wonderful city. As you know, Tempe isn’t perfect, but it is a really cool place to live.
If you live in Tempe and are a registered voter, I sincerely hope you’ll join me in voting for Dick Foreman for city council.
