We are at a critical juncture in this campaign. Both sides are sharpening their swords and the distinctions are becoming clearer. My opponent, Mr. Tart, is taking the position that everything is fine and asking us voters to not change horses in mid-stream. His principal argument is that experience should win out. I agree. I believe that experience, the right experience, is what we need, especially now!
My opponent, Mr. Tart, is a government regulator for the FDA. To be fair, during his four years on Council we've seen some positive things happen. I am running because of what we have NOT seen. We have NOT seen innovative approaches to solving our significant traffic issues. We have NOT seen Crooked Creek gated. We have NOT seen Crabapple sufficiently supported by my opponent. We have NOT seen an ability to fully fund our road improvements each year. We have NOT seen a program for constructing sidewalks, bike paths, or parks. The tragedy lies in the fact that my opponent and I live in the most densely populated part of Milton, yet he has done very little to help this part of our city. What we have seen is one roadblock after another. I believe we deserve better.
I am a Vice President of an award-winning design firm, a former small business owner, engineer and Conservative. My experience includes the creation of exemplary parks and other community facilities throughout the Southeastern region. I have worked with dozens of cities and counties across the region. I am running on a simple, three point platform: 1) attract high tech business to Milton’s existing commercial zones and support our business sector, such that their success can shoulder more of our tax burden, 2) strengthen our sense of community and 3) protect our rural community feel. In short, I am running on a platform of Heritage and High Tech. With the right kind of plan we can manage traffic more effectively.
I am a father and soon-to-be grandfather. I want to grow the legacy of Milton as a lifetime community of excellence, so that my grandchildren will one day choose to make Milton home just as I did.
With nearly 30 years of experience in design and working with cities and communities, I have seen the best and worst practices and I know that the key to success in any municipal design is community support.
Yes, we need experience on our Council. The question is, what sort of experience? Do we need a government regulator or a creative innovator? Do we want more studies or someone who has implemented best practices?
I am Lance Large and I ask for your vote and your support.
Remember to VOTE LARGE for MILTON!
