Broer announces candidacy for District 4

MADISON –Madison resident Jocelyn Broer has announced her candidacy to represent District 4 on Madison City Council.

Broer has vowed that her campaign will refuse any donations from developers.

A small business owner, Broer has lived in Madison for 5.5 years. “The theme of my campaign is ‘I’m Listening,’” Broer said. “Voters need to know that their elected officials are hearing their concerns, and I’m already speaking with my neighbors across District 4.”

“I’ll have their backs on the issue most important to them,” she said.

The Broer campaign platform follows a definite approach:

* Sustainable growth — “As a small business owner, I know the importance of fiscal responsibility. We should be growing revenue and value for Madison residents, not problems. We achieve this by growing in a smart way, which will allow us to maintain our quality of life,” Broer said.

* An innovative education system – “It’s no secret that Madison has the best public schools in North Alabama, and, as your voice on the city council, I will make certain we stay on top. It’s important for our property values, but mostly, it’s important for our kids,” she said.

* Accountability in local government – “In order for our local government to maintain trust with the public, we must be transparent on the policies, processes and outcomes that affect our communities,” Broer said. “I promise you this: I will never accept donations from developers.”

Broer wants all residents to feel connected. “I believe that happens when we are all informed and involved in local government. Busy moms and dads should be able to focus on their families, jobs and businesses and know that their elected officials will have their backs.”

“Whether you’ve lived in Madison 50 years or five minutes, I am listening to you,” she said.

Broer reminded residents about important deadlines for municipal elections: Register to vote by Aug. 20. Submit absentee ballots by Aug. 20 at 5 p.m. Voters must be a resident of Madison by July 26 to participate in the Aug. 25 municipal election.
