Letter: ‘Visionaries’ Brainard, Worrell good for city



I am writing in support of my friend Jeff Worrell, in his run for City Council, in the southeast district. And yes, Jeff is also a friend of, and endorsed by Mayor Brainard…a friendship which developed as Jeff has worked his butt off for Carmel as a volunteer, for many years.

As a resident of Carmel for over 48 years now, and also as a business owner in Carmel, I want to proclaim that if not for visionaries like the Mayor, and Jeff Worrell, Carmel would still be living in the past, instead of ranking among the best places to live in America!

The Mayor’s opponent and Jeff’s, (Luci Snyder) have fought the Mayor at every turn. Both of these opponents have of course, wanted the mayor’s job…which is probably where that opposition mostly comes from. The only way they have of getting our attention apparently, is to turn everyday sensible financial decisions, like helping the CRC refinance its debt, into “The Sky is falling” verbiage, which simply isn’t true, or necessary.

Jeff, as in all things he does, is running a positive campaign, and is not going to bash his opponent with negativity or half-truths….which is not true of her campaign this far.

As a concerned citizen, I want candidates like Jeff, that are not only going to stand up for what is right, even if it may be in disagreement with the Mayor, but also who will work together with the Mayor to carry his vision forward….not fight everything he suggests….just because he was the one suggesting it. It’s time for the City Council to start playing for the same team.
