Morgan Hill retirees endorse Larry Carr
City employees have a unique perspective on the day-to-day business of the city and the importance of leadership for its success. The City of Morgan Hill is a multi-million dollar municipal corporation operating as a public trust. The city needs thoughtful leaders with a deep understanding of the community and the ability to bring business judgment as well as an appreciation for public processes.
Employees understand firsthand the positive impact of elected officials who do their homework, listen to all sides, and can intelligently frame issues that can lead to solutions.
It was always clear that Larry Carr was prepared, that he was engaged with the community and his colleagues on the City Council, and that he was able to develop consensus solutions to even the trickiest issues.
Larry insisted that public decisions required active outreach to residents and affected businesses. That was a standard not just for himself, but one he challenged staff to follow as well. He made sure that the council held us accountable for sound analysis and recommendations, and for following through on council direction.
Morgan Hill deserves a mayor with a passion for Morgan Hill, and the leadership skills to set and meet ambitious goals for continued progress. A mayor who has the respect of other regional leaders. A mayor who can work with the community, colleagues and staff to rebuild confidence. A mayor who is committed to Morgan Hill’s future.
Larry Carr is all of these. We support Larry Carr for Mayor.
