Grausz makes things happen

Dan Grausz has my full support! He has proven his ability to make things happen, unlike his opponent, who is consistently wrapped up in processes designed to prevent things from happening. I find the prospect of Ira in office frightening. I generally take a "live and let live" attitude and actually am fine just ignoring his "Mr. No Attitude" in his role as a citizen. But as a public official? As a representative of me and my community? This can't be ignored. Ira has a strong track record in one thing: wasting local government resources to attempt to support his latest conspiracy theory.

City and school officials spend thousands of our tax dollars, resources and time servicing his broad, exhausting and frivolous "freedom of information" requests that support his anti-government paranoia. He consistently pushes for additional meetings, public input sessions and costly studies to slow down our communities' forward progress, and he's constantly arguing for costly public elections for each and every city decision. This activity is simply money out of our pockets — money that could and should be spent on improving our local community.

We run under a representative government here. Ira's approach to local government certainly doesn't represent me. Dan's approach does.
