From Chris Watts, Candidate for Cerro Gordo Supervisor:
A few weeks back, we were voting for a new City councilman. We were not voting Republican or Democrat – we were voting for the person and their vision for Mason City. I ask you to keep this in mind when voting this Tuesday.
I have that vision for Cerro Gordo county.
Change will happen with your vote this Tuesday.
I would appreciate your MARK by my name on the ballot.
INDEPENDENT or DEMOCRAT – especially if you vote straight Democrat – you can STILL GO OVER & PUT A MARK BY CHRIS WATTS
This is the real game changer in this election. Some voters are not aware of this voting right. Many people I encountered going door to door are under the presumption that if you vote STRAIGHT Democrat or Republican, it is an all or none issue. But as law allows, you can still vote straight party AND still put a mark by any other name you desire. And I would appreciate that mark by my name.
Please get the word out.
I have been attending the Board of Supervisor meetings for over 8 years now and feel I can hit the ground running.
Our County is in serious need for change. I believe in TERM LIMITS and WIND ENERGY. Look at EVERY County around us. The tax revenue from their windmills is being used to fix their roads and bridges. Good infrastructure attracts good business!
We are a few years behind our neighboring counties, currently. With your vote for Chris Watts, this can happen here in Cerro Gordo County.
More transparency, better representation of the rural areas are important to me. This is about the county in whole, not just the metro area.
I met some really great people going door to door. I started July 5th and finished late Wednesday evening. Pretty much every night and every weekend. Saturday’s were anywhere from 8 to 11 hour walks. Every farm to the Floyd County line and every farm to the Franklin County line. Every apartment and house in the City that is in District 3. I heard many concerns that need addressing. Many new ideas.
Most importantly, many new friends!
Again, I ask for your mark of confidence this Tuesday.
For a better Cerro Gordo County,
