Mayor Bridger et al 11 DEC 23
I would like to take this opportunity to again express my interest in the vacancy on the City Planning Commission.
I have been a contractor for over 30 years, the last 17 here in Sheridan. I grew up here, attending Taylor, Linden and Central Jr High School, and high school at Big Horn. My family goes back in Sheridan and Johnson Counties over 140 years.
I understand that the desires of the long-time locals must be balanced with the needs of the younger generation, and the inevitable influx of people seeking our way of life. I do NOT want to see Sheridan suffer from the same problems as the people in Teton County. We must act now to assure a balance and keep Sheridan livable for all concerned. It should be noted that all three of my children chose to leave the Sheridan area for economic reasons. I understand the frustration.
I am retiring from Cosner Construction at the end of this year, seeking to devote more time to my legislative duties and interests, and believe that serving on this board would enhance my abilities as a legislator on behalf of the people of Sheridan, and that this board would be given a stronger voice in Cheyenne as necessary. I see it as a win/win for the City of Sheridan.
Thank you for your consideration.
