From the McGrady For Mayor Campaign:
Patrick McGrady is now officially a candidate for Mayor of the City of Aberdeen. The Aberdeen Board of Elections approved McGrady’s candidacy application on September 14, 2011.
The McGrady for Mayor campaign is moving ahead toward the November 8, 2011 election.
Saturday morning, McGrady said “We have been talking to lots of voters in Aberdeen. People are frustrated with the ever-increasing water bills and taxes that come from City Hall. We believe that Aberdeen can be great, but we need new leadership to make that happen.”
The current administration at City Hall has approved “fee” increases and water/sewer rate increases at a rapid pace in recent years. The “ENR fee” adds approximately $75 per year to each residential bill. The sewer rate was increased by 3% this year on top of other increases in recent years.
“The hard-working people of Aberdeen need relief from the taxes and spending at City Hall,” McGrady continued, “We are all tired of the excuses. Let’s get Aberdeen back to work together.”
The McGrady for Mayor Campaign has released a new video introducing Patrick at www.McGradyforMayor.com that explains why Patrick is running and the changes that he wants to make in Aberdeen, including making it easier to invest in Aberdeen.
Patrick is a long-time member of the Aberdeen community and small businessman who believes in the future of the City of Aberdeen. “I love Aberdeen, and I want to see our community thrive.” Patrick says.
