Altoona council needs proven leaders

In November, voters will get the opportunity to elect four Altoona City Council members that will help lead the city forward.

Altoona has made significant progress in the last few years, and to ensure our progress continues we must elect candidates who are leaders and understand how to balance our community needs with our city’s financial resources.

We have four conservative candidates with a variety of life experiences and backgrounds.

Current council members Dave Butterbaugh and Bruce Kelley along with longtime public servant Dave Ellis and local businessman Ron Beatty fit the criteria Altoona needs on council.

I have worked with these four individuals extensively. They have the passion for our city, an understanding of local government and the leadership needed on council.

Please join me in voting for Butterbaugh, Kelley, Ellis and Beatty on Nov. 2.
