Zeauskas, Gor­man will im­prove Elk­ton

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: WALT CHICOSKY ELK­TON

I am a life­long mem­ber of the com­mu­nity. Born in 1939, I grew up on West Main Street. I have lived in Elk­ton my en­tire life. I have seen many changes; there have been up and downs.

The last 20 years, how­ever, have seen only downs. The cur­rent path has led Elk­ton in a down­ward spi­ral. It’s time to stop elect­ing peo­ple on per­son­al­ity and start elect­ing can­di­dates with the skills to run the town. Our cur­rent lead­er­ship is un­able to even get the wa­ter bills out cor­rectly.

Although Chris Zeauskas and Bob Gor­man come from very dif­fer­ent back­grounds, they both are suc­cess­ful busi­ness­men. Chris is a small busi­ness owner who has sur­vived the 2008 eco­nomic melt­down and is now thriv­ing with­out ever tak­ing gov­ern­ment sub­si­dies or tax breaks. Bob is re­spected in both the sci­en­tific com­mu­nity and in the cor­po­rate world. He works for a ma­jor cor­po­ra­tion and con­trib­utes across func­tions and de­part­ments.

To­gether, Chris and Bob pro­vide com­pli­men­tary man­age­ment per­spec­tives. Their elec­tion would im­prove the town gov­ern­ment and change the di­rec­tion.

It’s time we bring Elk­ton back to its for­mer promi­nence.
