MADISON – Teddy Powell, incumbent District 3 Councilman on Madison City Council, is seeking re-election to the post.
Powell has been honored to serve District 3 residents and the City of Madison, he said. “While there have been many positive improvements, I believe the momentum must be continued through experienced, strong leadership.”
“I work here, and I have raised my family here. I am invested in our city and district as a whole, and I want to see Madison thrive,” Powell said.
“Now is the time, more than ever, that we continue our comprehensive plan regarding our residential growth, infrastructure, schools and economy,” Powell said. “While this mayor and council have accomplished many things over the last four years, there are a few projects that need to be completed in order for Madison to achieve its full potential for future generations.”
Powell emphasizes the need for continued development and sustained support in specific areas:
* Continue smart growth — Continue with the first-ever strategic, smart growth plan that was developed with input from both the School Growth Committee and Madison Board of Education to benefit the city and award-winning Madison City Schools.
