“There is nothing as constant as change.” That lesson was one of the first I learned after graduating from college and entering the real world. In eight weeks Geneva voters will have a choice for mayor for the first time since April 3, 2001. It could be time for a change in Geneva.
Why Bob McQuillan for mayor of Geneva?
In the last twelve years, a lot has changed about how people view their elected officials. A level of trust has been lost and many feel they no longer have a voice. In April of 2001, there were 5,475 votes cast in the race for mayor of Geneva. In 2009, only 2,571 voted in the same race. Only 14.5% of registered voters across all Geneva precincts voted in the 2011 consolidated election. My professional experience in sales, marketing, program development and people management, will allow me to pursue a focused effort to move Geneva forward. My plan is called Building Geneva’s Future Together. It is my sincere hope that you trust me to address the issues we face as Genevans and support me in my campaign for mayor.
I believe the next mayor of Geneva needs to focus on the following:
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Economic Development
My team has completed our campaign website and it is now active. Please review my detailed plan about the above topics at www.bobmcquillan.com. Your thoughts, ideas and comments are encouraged and welcome. We all have a stake in Geneva and need to build Geneva’s future together.
The website includes an invitation to join our e-mail list for notification of pertinent voting deadlines as well as both public and private coffees and gatherings that are being scheduled. In addition, we would appreciate any time you might have available to volunteer to walk a neighborhood, host a coffee in your home, place a yard sign or donate to the campaign. Please note that our first informal public meet & greet is Saturday, February 9th upstairs at Graham’s 318 Coffeehouse on Third Street from 9 to 11 am. Stop by and let’s talk about the future!
