A Message from Jack
Thank you for allowing me the privilege of serving you these past years. I am again seeking your vote on Election Day. Typically, candidates seeking reelection talk about their accomplishments, about what they've done in office or how much better things have become since they've been there. Well, I'm not going to talk about that. Why?
Because this election is about Cary's future, not its past. It isn't about how Cary managed to once again have the lowest tax rate in Wake County. And it isn't about how Cary has managed to remain one of the safest cities of its size in the country. And, no, it isn't even about the many new businesses that have set up shop in Cary and the thousands of good-paying jobs created here in just the last four years. So, while I am proud of how I helped us achieve these important milestones, I won't be talking about it.
This election is about the future.
It's about implementing smart planning and zoning so that Cary continues to redevelop wisely and grow responsibly.
It's about shepherding change so that Cary remains attractive to job creators, and affordable for both job seekers and retirees.
And it's about protecting what we have and preparing for what climate change may bring by implementing sensible storm water management so our neighbor's runoff doesn't become our flood or washout.
Like some of you, I've loved Cary since I first arrived here thirty-some years ago. I hated when it felt like we'd lost our way and let the unbridled growth in the 90's threaten the goose that laid the golden egg at our doorstep. But, today, I'm proud of what's become of this community we call home, and I'm passionately committed to seeing to it Cary grows even better with age. It won't always be easy to keep on course. It wasn't back than and it isn't now. But when you remember where you came from, and you know where you want to go, you're likely to get to where you need to be tomorrow.
I'm ready. Let's go.
Help keep Cary that special and unique place to live, work, play, raise a family and retire.
Please vote 'Jack Smith' on October 10th.
