Praise for Seminole city manager

Editor:
It must be election time in Seminole because once again Tom Christy has submitted his name for a position on the City Council. The voters of Seminole have rejected him four times already. Maybe itís because he runs a negative campaign every time.

This time his argument is that the city manager form of government is the wrong way to run this city. After almost 20 years as a city manager, Mr. Frank Edmunds has moved the sleepy city into a vibrant and attractive community to live in, work in and to educate our children in. He has also brought in many new businesses, which enhance the quality of life in our city.

Over the last four years, he has cut about $3 million from the city budget without changing any service to our residents. In 2008 the economy took a nosedive, but Mr. Edmunds kept the city in the black while many cities around us were cutting services. He has put together a great staff of department leaders who help Mr. Edmunds run our city like a Swiss clock.

At the council meeting of Aug. 12, many of the city business leaders praised Mr. Edmunds for this great work and implored him to please reconsider his retirement option, which he did, and he will stay with us until August 2015.

If the voters of Seminole feel that many of the business leaders are correct in praising Mr. Edmunds for his great work and service to our community, as I do, then let Tom Christy know by passing over his name on the ballot in November.
