Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Gary Allen Nemeth

Candidate for
Mayor; City of Paso Robles

This information is provided by the candidate

I firmly believe in Paso Robles and support our community with a clear vision, guided by common sense and decision-making that is well thought out and researched.

Sir Winston Churchill said, "Sometimes our best is simply not enough...We have to do what is required."

I believe that we must plan for our future today, not wait for tomorrow. Our adopted 2003 General Plan guides us with a blueprint for the next 20 years. The Town Center/Uptown Specific Plan leads us into a direction for the next 3 - 4 decades. The Urban Water Management Plan is based on 2025 and beyond. We cannot dwell on the past, but must not forget our proud history and strong work ethic. We need to insure we have a plan for careful and managed growth, truly a place we can all live, recreate and work together.

I will insist the necessary infrastructure be well thought out and planned. Our current citizens will pay their fair share of development and water fees, etc., but will not have to carry the burden of providing monies for future residents. Housing, employment, educational and recreational opportunities as well as concerns with water, sewer and our natural resources must be considered and planned.

Up until the past two years I served honorably as one of your elected officials. Chosen by a majority to lead, I have been empowered to act in the public interest. Having taken counsel and pondered, I shall continue to move us forward. My compensation goes far beyond a fair salary. It is to serve our community in a profession where no professional training is required, yet where Character, Candor, Conviction and Honesty are prerequisites. Those past years as your Councilman and Mayor Pro-Tem I have found that difficult situations often bring out qualities in all of us that otherwise might not have risen to the surface, such as Courage, Faith, and our need for one another. The earthquake in 2003 is such an example.

It is my hope that you will share my vision for Paso Robles with your vote of confidence in me on November 2nd as your Mayor.
