Councilor Endorses Chase For Mayor



During the past four years, I have had the privilege of getting to know Jim Chase. Concurrently, over the last two years, I have had the opportunity to work with his mayoral opponent. After much thought about who can better serve all of Payson's citizens, and examination of Jim Chase's record of service to our community, I am writing this letter to endorse Mr. Chase.

The following strengths distinguish candidate Chase:

  • Encourages team work and efforts to achieve positive, sensible, realistic results.
  • Straight talker -- abhors gossip. If he has something to say about you, he'll say it to you.
  • Trust builder, sets the better example with everyone.
  • Sense of humor.
  • Results oriented -- let's get it done attitude.
  • Not a bureaucrat, respects conservative, lean but reasonable, approaches to conducting the town's business.
  • Trust of the Tonto Apache Tribe -- finally, an opportunity to realize benefits of working together.
  • An achiever with a record of noteworthy accomplishments.
  • Endurance and ability to commit the time and energy -- full time, if necessary -- to serving as your mayor.
  • Loyalty to the entire community, not just special interests.

Please join me in voting for Jim Chase, Payson's next mayor!

Dick Reese, Payson
