I will be voting for Tom Loeffler and David Rutter to replace Tim Fruth and Andy Romance in the next Payson council elections. This is in addition to my vote for Bob Edwards for mayor.
Tom Loeffler was in the Wisconsin's Department of Transportation and coordinated the 911 system with locations throughout Wisconsin. He moved to Payson and built an energy-efficient house and chairs the Payson Surface Transportation Advisory Committee.
David Rutter was CEO of a rural Iowa hospital and moved to Payson to hike.
He serves on Payson's Parks and Recreation Board and the Mayor's Task Force on the Trails' system.
