Why I am running for District 4 Council

Dear Community Members,

On May 3, 2011, you will be asked to choose two Council representatives for District Four.

To become a candidate, and accept the nomination from the Community, I had to ask myself.

  1. What qualities should a council member have?
  2. What are the problems facing the Community?
  3. How will the goals I set impact the community if I am elected?

I have lived in Goodyear Village since I was in high school and worked for the Community for the past twenty-three years, and I have witnessed the numerous challenges this large district has faced. We have seen a rise in housing and domestic violence, increase in health and social problems, and lack of interest in community activities.

As a candidate, it is my hope to bring you awareness, progress and accountability to the District Four seat. I see the role of our Council member as someone who is educated, responsible, makes good judgments, and is a motivator. A leader who has an understanding of others, is willing to work hard, and has innovative ideas and principles.

In closing, I hope I have given you a little insight of my desire to help my community. As a candidate, I make myself available to you, ready to address your concerns.

With Enthusiasm and Spirit, I ask for your support and Vote!

Greg Mendoza, Candidate for Councilman
District Four Community
