Letter to the editor: Phelps a true leader

Phelps a true leader

Ron Phelps is the leadership Centennial needs. For the past two months I’ve been walking neighborhoods for Ron and talking to friends and neighbors about their vision for our city. Most people comment that they want to see Centennial return to its roots of limited government. This is what we were all promised when Centennial was incorporated.

That’s what Ron stands for — a government that focuses on providing services we need like maintaining our roads and public safety and less on regulations that would ban parking recreational vehicles in residential neighborhoods. Ron’s opponent, Candace Moon, in fact sponsored the latest discussion on banning recreation vehicles, which does more to divide us as a community then bring us together.

In one of her greater ironies, Councilmember Moon has been critical of Ron for vacating his council seat in 2010 after a hard-fought election in 2009 where Ron beat her husband, Vorry. Ron had to move out of state for work after he lost his job and Vorry Moon was appointed to fill his council seat. Most of us would be gracious under these circumstances. Not Councilmember Moon. For her, it’s just another opportunity to attack a neighbor.

Like many of my friends and neighbors, I’ve woken up one day without a job and wondered how I was going to pay the mortgage and support my family. We need people in leadership like Ron that understand the ups and downs of life.

I’m glad Ron is back and running for city council! I’m proud to walk for him and support him. I hope you’ll join me in voting for Ron Phelps!
