Steckler best choice for Mill Creek City Council seat

John Steckler is by far the best choice for Mill Creek City Council. He is opposed by Adam Morgan.

John was appointed by the City Council in February 2018. There were 16 candidates applying for the position and John was selected, and he has honorably served since then. I’ve know John for a number of years. He is very intelligent and a person of high integrity and boundless energy.

He and his wife and two sons hae been positive active community builders of Mill Creek for over 20 years. He is a unifier and a savvy business and financial professional who is a creative problem solver and been a very positive addition to the City Council. He is well aware of the issues regarding debt financing vs. a utility tax to fund our aging infrastructure.

John believes in the future of our wonderful city, and wants to plan for the future and not hide our heads in the sand. He is a strong advocate for the arts and beatification of the city. He is also transparent, friendly and approachable.

He works positively with the city employees and has a goal of reducing excessive employee turnover, which is wasteful and expensive, and getting into unnecessary and expensive lawsuits. He studiously avoids petty and niggling issues that occasionally occupy too much of the Council’s time and energy.

John Steckler is clearly the right candidate for this Council seat. I urge you to please vote for him.
