Editor, the Advocate:
I advocate the election of Omar Rachid as the next mayor of Victoria. Omar has the experience and knowledge, the recruiting and marketing skills and the drive and determination to move Victoria into a new era of progress and prosperity; primarily, he has a clear vision for our great city, including specific goals. Omar will:
1) Unify the City Council by encouraging teamwork, harmony and consensus through recognizing and balancing the needs of the city with the needs of each district;
2) Establish a fair and attractive compensation package for police officers, encouraging new recruits to locate here and experienced and established officers to stay;
3) Maintain and improve roads and streets stressed by the increase in oil industry traffic and neighborhood roads in disrepair;
4) Advance the quality of life for all citizens by bringing in new industry and new jobs and by attracting new entertainment, restaurants and shopping venues so that money generated in Victoria stays in Victoria.
Omar's experience in physician recruitment for Citizens Medical Center and management for C.L. Thomas Inc. affords him the insight to accomplish these goals. He is our man.
Mary Stahoviak, Victoria
