I know Kirk Bertolet, and he would make an excellent mayor of Morgan Hill.
He is a veteran of the US Air Force. There are many fine qualities that are instilled in service members that they carry with them all their lives. He is passionate about Morgan Hill and its future. He is for growth as long as it is controlled and serves the community well.
His pro-business stand is well documented. As an employee in the public transportation sector, he is aware of the challenges facing Morgan Hill, and his knowledge of rail systems will be invaluable as we face the future routing of the High Speed Rail through Morgan Hill.
He is fiscally responsible and realizes Morgan Hill cannot continue to sustain its funding primarily from impact fees imposed on new home permits, and must look to alternative funding sources that the community will accept as necessary to keep Morgan Hill vibrant and a great place to live.
Kirk is pro law enforcement and will work with Morgan Hill Police Department and the City Council to see that Morgan Hill remains a safe place for people to live, work and raise their families.
I encourage voters to look beyond name familiarity and look at the character of the candidates and what they can bring to the Mayor’s office.
There comes a time for new faces with new ideas and approaches to governing Morgan Hill. This is the time.
I encourage voters to vote for Kirk Bertolet for mayor Of Morgan Hill.
