Menahga 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.

As the incumbent Mayor, the Council and I have made great strides in bringing the City’s financial reporting back in order. There is still more work to be done. I grew up in the City of Menahga for the majority years of my life and have actively participated in and, continue to participate in various volunteer organizations, i.e., Civic & Commerce Assn and Wadena County BRE Business Welcome Wagon. These organizations strive to make Menahga a better place to live, work and play. I worked for the Menahga Public Schools as Business Manager for 28 years and own a small business in Menahga. I love this City and desire to continue to be a part of making sure that it continues to be a viable and growing community.
1. Complete the process of hiring a full-time City Administrator/Clerk/Treasurer. We have utilized temporary staff at this time. 2. Continue to make sure that the finances of the City are accurate and complete in order for the Council to make sound decisions regarding all expenses of running the City. And, make every effort to reduce taxes, if at all possible. 3. Make every effort to see that the Council and Staff work together to ensure the City is being run as efficiently as possible.
I will promote public safety by following and ensuring that all City Ordinances and laws are adhered to as it pertains to all residents of the City; that all public concerns and complaints brought forward are handled promptly by the appropriate staff member/Council; and, that all directives of the Council are followed by the staff as it pertains to public safety. The City is ultimately responsible to ensure that all residents feel safe in their neighborhoods!
