WHY RE-ELECT TOM CLAYTON TO THE SPRINGTOWN CITY COUNCIL?
Here are a couple of reasons why you should Re-Elect Tom Clayton to the Springtown City Council.
"I don't do this for the praise or the money. I am the only candidate running with a proven and verifiable track record of new ideas and accomplishments for securing our future like upgrading our water plant at $1.9 million, upgrading our wastewater treatment plant at 3.9 million, new roads and bridges for everyone, securing new high speed internet service for residential and economic growth, securing new emergency medical services for everyone and many more smaller improvements within the city too numerous to list in this ad. These were all necessary improvements and expenditures of your tax dollars. All projects mentioned; water plant, wastewater plant, new or rehabbed roads, water and sewer lines came in at or below budget. Verizon upgrading their system cost the citizens nothing and the new emergency medical service came from convincing the Parker County Hospital District to invest our tax dollars here in Springtown for everyone instead of taking our tax dollars and investing in cities to the South. These were things citizens told me they wanted to benefit everyone. I did spark a lot of these projects but we couldn't complete them without the help of everyone at the city. The Council, City Administrator and full staff got it done by working together as a team doing their job whether or not it was a council member, city administrator or the guy who fills the pot hole in your street. We all get it done together and I don't want to stop the momentum we've built together."
