Letter to the Editor: A recommendation for the community vote
It is with much enthusiasm that I recommend our community to vote for Mayor Zach Vruwink in the upcoming election.
Mayor Vruwink’s leadership qualities of entrepreneurship, superior communication skills, honesty, integrity, political savviness, and ability to inspire others have been enhancing the city of Wisconsin Rapids since 2012.
Adversity – Faced with declining “big businesses” for our city’s economic growth, Vruwink has attracted new employers to Wisconsin Rapids.
Teamwork – Due to retirements during Vruwink’s time in office, he integrated a new Police Chief and a new fire chief. He has also aided in the recruitment of a city HR director and executive coordinator to ensure the Wisconsin Rapids continues to run smoothly and professionally.
Health & Recreation – Zach Vruwink was critical in negotiating a 10-year lease to keep the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters at Witter Field; converting an empty shopping mall to the YMCA/Boys & Girls Club; the renovation of Rapids valuable river trail; and the addition of the Wisconsin Rapids Regional Aquatic Center.
The above is a very short list of the ways Mayor Vruwink has aided in growing the community of Wisconsin Rapids. As an advocate of “change:” my theory is why change, if great changes are already being done? Vote Zach Vruwink and keep Wisconsin Rapids moving forward.
