I would like to use this opportunity to endorse both Diane Pfaeffle and Dee Cragun for City Council.
I have known Diane personally over the last few years. She has been a regular at both City Council and Chamber of Commerce meetings. She listens to facts, thinks with common sense, and has a great pulse on what the citizens of Deer Park have been asking for. She’s conservative when it comes to spending money and has great ideas to help fund amenities that the people of Deer Park have been wanting outside of using taxpayer dollars. She’s been in the area for over 20 years and is truly invested in the future of Deer Park.
Dee has a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge. The City of Deer Park is in a great financial spot and that has a lot to do with the decision making that Dee has made in the past. I don’t agree with her on everything, but I’ve had some great conversations with her about the future of Deer Park and I would be honored to serve on the council with her. Her opponent’s bio is great and very respectable, my concern is that with how involved I’ve been in the community over the last five years, I only just met him a week ago and have never seen him at a council meeting. My preference is to work with someone with the experience and knowledge in city government and Dee Cragun is that person.
I believe these ladies to be the best options on our ballot and feel they would make their decisions based on what’s best for the citizens of Deer Park.
I also encourage you to watch the candidate forum on the Stags TV YouTube channel to hear firsthand from each of the candidates.
