Bay City Council Ward 2 Candidate: Paul Vincent

Paul Vincent

Thank you for your time. My name is Paul Vincent and I am running for Ward 2 City Council. As your city councilman, I will encourage public debate; increase government accessibility and give residents a better understanding of what is taking place in Council and who represents their interests. I’m concerned that too few tools are available for residents to stay apprised of Council issues. I would like to change that. 

I will implement measures for more citizen involvement on all issues. By utilizing social media and email, I will ensure that each resident has the opportunity to understand what is taking place in Council. When residents are engaged, our city flourishes. I am committed to improving citizen involvement by means of broadcasting council meetings and increasing lines of communication.  

Through measures like monthly town-hall meetings, modifications to the city's website, and Ward 2 updates by email and Twitter, I will work hard to keep residents informed of important issues that impact our city. Additionally, I would like to add more opportunities for residents of all ages to live an active lifestyle; increase business development for our existing commercial spaces and reduce emergency legislative procedures.

Although I will be the decision-maker for Ward 2, I expect to receive input and ideas from my neighbors and other residents of Bay Village. When there is citizen involvement in local government, it inherently ensures the greatest benefit to all residents.
