Reader Opinion: Vote for John Ward
John Ward brings success and no controversy as a candidate to the Baxter City Council. I know. As publisher of the Proctor newspaper I covered him when he was a city councilor and mayor. I also served alongside him and followed John as mayor. He governed with professionalism, empathy and a desire to make a good city better. He initiated and oversaw a wide rage of new city construction and improvements while encouraging smart business and residential development.
Any Proctorite will give John a glowing reference. John has been praised for his coolheaded nature in a crisis, easily engaging citizens in discussions, team building, unselfishness, integrity and leadership skills. He is warm, kind, pleasant, and approachable. While competitive, he brings out the best of those around him.His knowledge and accomplishments as a former state representative will serve Baxter well.
Yes, this is who John Ward is.
