Candidate Statement

These are exciting times for the City of Fort Bragg and I am proud to be serving as your Mayor. We have accomplished a lot in the last 4 years. The magnificent Coastal Trail has been developed and is now open to the public. We have hired a new City Manager and a new City Attorney. We've seen the creation of new businesses. We have made significant improvements to Bainbridge Park in order to make it more family-friendly. We have made difficult financial decisions in order to balance the budget and remain solvent. We have made local government more accessible to our citizenry by televising all Council meetings and committee meetings live on Channel 3. But there is still work to be done. A recent study has shown that desalinization may hold the key to future water supplies. We need to continue to work with the community to shape our collective vision for the future development of the Mill Site. We need to ensure we have a hospital and quality health care. We need to help those who need a helping hand and not enable those who don't. I have 16 years experience as an active City Council member, I know how to listen, and I promise to commit the time and effort to continue this rewarding work on your behalf. After all, the best ideas come from you! Re-elect Lindy Peters to the Fort Bragg City Council and thanks for voting!
