This week Courier-Gazette reporters are asking around town, "What do you think of the performance of Rockland city government?"
The "Mayor" no matter who he or she is, is only one of 5 councilors and the title is intended to be mostly ceremonial. The city manager is the person who should be leading the city in any direction along with the council, the Community development director/board, Chamber of Commerce and more importantly the citizens/taxpayers all working together.
Young, energetic, enthusiastic and determined are some of what Will brings to the table. I see the council being productive, good listeners and openminded. Exactly what Rockland deserves. I am very excited to see Rockland and the surrounding communities start thriving. Optimism is contagious!
way to young to be mayor not any weirs enough exprrise but no one else on the city conuncial wanted it so here we are
Will is a great person and very capable to serve as mayor. Will, however is not the solution to Rockland's challenges, good or bad. Without public engagement, Will's ability is limited. If the public gives him direction and input, I'm confident that he can steer the ship in the right direction. If the population depends on Will to do it on his own, despite his best efforts, the results will probably be disappointing. Get on Richard's bandwagon!
Well, Will is at the helm and has a "CAN DO" attitude. Am optimistic for our future. We'll see how some of the "drama", Mr. Borzagni mentioned, is dealt with. Believe we are seeing the start of living in the solution instead of the problem. Onward and upward, Rockland! There's work to be done and we're up to it. :)
