Have you ever watched a Payson Town Council meeting or read related accounts in a newspaper and thought: "Just use some ‘common sense' in these decisions"? Susan Connell has proven integrity, honesty and impressive financial skills. She weighs both sides of an issue and uses common sense.
Su became the Rim Country Literacy Director in 2001 with these words, "I want to make a difference." She knew that with all residents understanding and speaking the English language, it would bring strength and unity to Payson. As Su says on KMOG, "This town is our town."
It is important for those wondering if Su has the stamina to serve on Payson Town Council, to bear in mind that at intervals during the past five years, Su has served as a member of the Time Out Shelter's Board of Directors, Board President of the Payson Park and Recreation Board, Community Outreach Coalition Member, Service Chair of Payson Rotary Club, Payson Regional Medical Gift Shop Volunteer. And the list goes on. Su is well versed in the topics that are important to the residents of Payson. She has "paid her dues" and earned the experience to make wise decisions as a future council member.
From 1963 to 2001, Su was employed by a large printing company in Wisconsin. Her role included work in the areas of personnel, data input and analysis, estimating and purchasing.
From 1983 to 2001, Su was employed by Procter and Gamble in the areas of purchasing, logistics, marketing and quality control. She managed a $25 million purchasing budget.
With these professional credentials, citizens can count on Su answering e-mails and telephone calls in a timely manner, while listening to the voting public in returning town government to the people.
Remember, "This town is our town."
