STATEMENT FROM MATT MARQUARDT, CANDIDATE FOR MASON CITY CITY COUNCIL:
We are now going to begin IN EARNEST the next phase of this campaign for City Council culminating in the DECEMBER 5 ELECTION. We were a very strong 2nd place on November 7 despite the “YES” wave with their richly-funded campaign and many other obstacles and tricks thrown in our way. Remember, the newspaper reported my name as “BEUHNER” and then “WRONG NAME” for a so-called “correction”. Other below-the-belt actions were taken that I won’t discuss at this time. Now, I have learned that TWO MORE VOTES were added to our total since election night, bringing us to 466 instead of 464. We need to stand up and root out the corruption and downright malfeasance in Mason City’s City Hall. My opponent is a career politician who has been running for office since at least 1993. This is your chance for a new direction with STRONG LEADERSHIP – I WILL stand up for all citizens and protect the taxpayers. As promised, I WILL SUPPORT THE RENAISSANCE PROJECT as the voters approved it – BUT – once elected, I will safeguard you and help guide the project as best I can – working with city staff, the mayor and fellow council members – toward a successful implementation. There are many other pressing issues in Mason City beyond the “Renaissance”. Remember that next time you drive over a broken street, or your house is vandalized or stolen from, or your council member ignores you or puts us in line for another lawsuit.
VOTE MARQUARDT FOR TRUE CHANGE IN MASON CITY!
