Weston should get ahead of the game

A very wise man came by the warehouse about a week ago and asked me, “What does Weston want?”. I told him that I didn’t think that Weston knew what it wanted. With the urban sprawl coming north of the airport, the train is coming down the track. Weston can be engulfed by others regarding city limits or react. Do some research on Gardner-Edgerton and what happened there or look at Platte City and the building east and south of the city limits. We will find that being ahead of the game will benefit Weston in the long run and partially replace being run over in its tracks.

The candidates answer questions: Sebastian Ernst

What good things have happened during the past four years in your city? I have found it very promising that locals are starting to invest in Falmouth. We’ve had multiple small businesses open up within the city limits over the past few years and others have expanded. We could help foster even more growth and revitalization if we dedicate the time and resources necessary to attracting these kinds of investors, many of whom live right here in our county. We also have so many people and local groups here in Pendleton that volunteer their time and resources towards improving our county. I’m very grateful for all they do and hope to help these individuals with their efforts if elected.
