Rasmussen has fiscal experience

Monroe City Council will benefit from electing a councilmember with proven business skills balanced with a deep caring for our community as a great place to live. That is why I am voting for Jeff Rasmussen for Monroe City Council. A longtime resident of Monroe, Jeff would bring several years of financial management experience to the council position helping the city make good fiscal decisions to keep our city strong. Jeff thinks deeply about what kind of a city we all live in and raise a family. Safety, open spaces for parks, and community opportunities must be weighed against pure business growth; it all needs to make sense for our city. Jeff Rasmussen will work hard for Monroe to strive for this balance.
