Councilor Zettervall is a go-getter

Dear Editor,

Very soon you will be voting on Creswell’s next mayor. Two members of the city council have applied for the position, councilors Zettervall and Mounce.
Several months ago, I encouraged Councilor Zettervall to run for mayor, and I will be casting my vote for him. He is a go-getter who gets things done.
Councilor Zettervall initiated the Niblock Road lighting project, working with Lane County, Creswell School District, the City of Creswell and private donors to install lights on this very dark road leading to our high school and greatly improve the safety of our students. Councilor Zettervall chaired the Public Safety Committee that put on the Emergency Preparedness Fair last May. Even before he became a councilor, he was active as a citizen advocating for more police services.
Each year the city council selects a council president, who serves in place of the mayor in the mayor’s absence. For the last two years, Councilor Zettervall has been unanimously selected by the council to serve as council president.
I have worked closely with Councilor Zettervall; I have taken note of his love for Creswell and his hard work to get things done. He has earned my vote in the upcoming election, and I invite you to join me in selecting Councilor Zettervall as Creswell’s next mayor.

Mayor Dave Stram
Creswell
