As president of the New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government, I would like to take this opportunity to ask voters to vote for David Ament for New Berlin mayor on April 2.
Dave has been a leader in the community for many years, as well as the 7th District alderman since 2001. He also runs a successful New Berlin business.
He led the fight for 24/7 fire and paramedic services at all four of New Berlin's fire houses. Dave worked with the fire chief and other members of the Common Council on a cooperative agreement with the city of Brookfield to provide improved fire protection for the New Berlin Industrial Park and the northeast and northwest portions of our city.
Dave will control taxes and spending with a property tax freeze. He led the council to control city property taxes to a near-zero levy increase over the past five years, even as the current mayor proposed budgets that would have increased our tax bills by almost 25 percent during that same five-year period. Because of Dave's work, New Berlin's bond rating increased from Aa1 to Aaa. The city's tax rate is as low as it is because the majority of the council saw the wisdom of controlled spending.
Dave will use his leadership and experience to work with the council, staff and private sector to develop a comprehensive plan to revitalize the New Berlin City Center.
Please join me in voting for Ament for mayor.
