Candidate William H. Daisey tells why he should be elected as Dover's mayor.

I believe the citizens of Dover should elect me as mayor because of my unique, extremely varied, and comprehensive background and experiences. I have over 28 years of supervisory experience acquired in private industry, the federal government, state government, county government, and the public school system. I also am a qualified journeyman in over eight different trade areas.

This background enables me to understand the wants, needs, hopes and aspirations of a wide range of people, because I have walked in their shoes.

I believe that government exists to serve people. Unfortunately, too often government fails to fulfill this responsibity and people lose faith in the government. I would like to have the opportunity to restore some of that faith and play a vital role in resolving some of the problems we are confronted with.

I am especially concerned about quality of life issues such as containing the cost of government, bringing more jobs to the city, gaining more control over the sexual predators in our midst, the increased rowdiness on Loockerman Street, drugs, robberies and other crimes that are worse in some areas than others, but affect us all.

Many of our citizens have also been drinking and paying for contaminated (brown) water since 2002 (over eight years). I find this totally unacceptable.

As your mayor, I will work hard to lead this city and make it a better place to live, work and raise a family.
