I feel I will be a lifelong resident in Midland and want to be a part of the towns future development, I want to be a different voice than the one the general public generally wound associate with a typical politician. I am a regular guy and I am concerned about general issues affecting everyone not just a particular demprgaphic or specific issue.
My vision for Midland is...
to increase the towns diversity by trying to balance the towns older and younger population buy helping to create attractive reasons for individuals both young and old to come and stay, play and live in Midland. By trying to attract individuals with multiple talents and ideas that can positively add to our community on a variety of levels.
