Spicer City Mayor

The role of city mayor can vary from city to city. However, the mayor is usually the head of the city and may represent the city in front of other government bodies. A mayor also usually has a role in proposing a city budget that is approved by the city council. The budget influences the services the city provides to its residents. Mayors sometimes are voting members of city council, and in some cities the mayor is in charge of city council meetings.

My experience in city government is why I feel that I am the best candidate to continue as Mayor of Spicer. I love the beautiful town of Spicer, living here and owning a business here and I will continue to work for whatever is best for all of us in the community. Over my years as mayor, I have enjoyed being a part of growing Spicer with business and housing. Twenty (20) plus single family homes have been built.
My priorities for Spicer is what they have always been: The citizens of Spicer, to continue providing quality leadership and being available to them. To help the business and housing growth continue in Spicer. To continue to keep a clean, beautiful city and maintain our “Spicer is Nicer,” reputation.
Spicer has always had an excellent working relationship with the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Department. The agreement to provide police protection as a team is commendable to both parties. We will continue to work together promoting public safety to provide Spicer residents with the best economical protection.

I wouldn't say I'm the best candidate, Denny does a fantastic job, I definitely have big shoes to fill. I'm looking to work for the citizens of Spicer, by continuing to work on the growth of Spicer. I'm looking to expand on my leadership skills with the Council members elected to keep Spicer a great place to live, work and be entertained.
I would prioritize keeping the budget set before us in check. This will allow us to keep taxes to bare minimum increases.

I would prioritize the housing and land use growth to single family or small home residential areas. I believe if you're funding the project with minimal city assistance then let the building begin.

I would also like prioritize the growth of business's, new and old. Having more local business owners and workers will just plain create more tax revenue.
I would work with the council to promote neighbors being neighbors, get out and meet your neighbors, know who's who. Get to know them, work on plans to keep your area safe from. Understand when something is off and whom to inform. We have to work with each other at keeping Spicer neighborhoods safe. Working together to keep our parks a safe and great place to enjoy the day. Even if this as easy as looking at the trees and noticing a potential problem. However, it's our job to keep Spicer safe.
