Hassig for mayor
March 26, 2002
Carbondale is presently faced with some interesting and important issues. We need leadership that has the expertise to understand the complexities of smart growth; the ability to translate the issues into a language that we, as citizens, can understand; the desire to listen to our input before making decisions; and the experience to run a good meeting that deals with issues, not personalities.
This election we are fortunate to have a choice that meets these requirements. Michael Hassig has shown his dedication and commitment to Carbondale in numerous ways. He has chaired the Carbondale Planning and Zoning Commission, worked with numerous nonprofit organizations, established a business in town, and is raising his family here.
Michael also meets all of the above qualifications for good leadership. He is a man that truly “walks his talk.” He is my choice and my recommendation for our next mayor.
