The two biggest problems facing the Village of Morrow are resources and our aging infrastructure. We have been successful getting grants to address some of the infrastructure issues, like re-building the water plant, getting new road signs, and getting new protective vests for our law enforcement officers. We will continue this approach of writing grants for targeted infrastructure projects. For those projects not funded by grants, we will make strategic use of our local resources for pressing infrastructure needs.
I have served as Mayor of the Village of Morrow since 2016 and the village has had growth in population during that time. With the economic upswing since 2016, there has been rapid expansion in local housing, particularly in the Woodlands development. During the last 3 years, the Village has also undertaken the rebuilding and upgrading of the Village Water Plant, which supplies water to Village residents and beyond. I have served on the Village Council for about 28 years prior to being elected mayor. I am very familiar with the issues facing the village of Morrow and know most of the residents. I frequently engage the residents in conversation and they are very willing to share their concerns and observations with me. During the last three years, we have tackled some big problems in the village like flood water drainage and water system improvement. There is no substitute for experience.
One of the biggest successes in the Village of Morrow during the past 3 years has been the purchase of the abandoned Morrow Elementary School and its transformation into the Morrow Arts Center. I have worked with the owner to realize his vision for the Arts Center and helped attract more than 20 businesses to town. If re-elected, I will work to attract even more businesses for the Arts Center as well as elsewhere in the village.

The Village of Morrow is in the midst of a large project to rebuild our water plant. When that is completed in late 2019 or early 2020, the water system will be up to date and soft water will be available for village residents. Another concern is the state of the Morrow Plaza, which has deteriorated over the last decade. The Plaza is a major priority of mine, to get it re-vitalized and upgraded with new stores. Another priority is the revitalization of Phegley Park, on Main Street. A major renovation of that park with new playground equipment and recreation areas is in the planning stages.

I have lived in Morrow for over 60 years and am well aware of the assets and challenges of living in the town. For nearly half of that time, ,I have been involved in city government, serving on Village Council and as mayor. I am a property owner in the village.. I am proud of the fact that our crime rate is low in Morrow and that we do not have a narcotics problem, thanks to a strong relationship with our police department, Over the past two years, the village has had community festivals such as First Friday, the Morrow Market, Car Shows and Kids for Cops. These festivals have been put on by many dedicated community volunteers and there is a sense of renewed community pride. I strongly support these efforts.
