Jerry Little, 66
Little already has served two terms on the Berea City Council.
“Berea’s been pretty good to me and I have extra time now,” he said. “I thought I might have something to offer. I have all kinds of experience. My work experience and values are very important.”
Some crucial duties of the Berea City Council is to keep expenditures in line with revenue, he said.
“We need to do that and try to keep the costs down for our citizens and have a good city government — good police, good fire (protection), good streets and good parks,” he said.
An upcoming challenge for the city government is to find a way to fund a federally mandated storm water upgrade system.
The project is geared to collect storm water from places where it might cause trouble and move the water into waterways that will guide it to a proper collecting point.
Berea residents can look to Little’s accomplishments to assure they made the right decision, he said.
“Look what I’ve stood for during the past two years,” he said. “You can see who I am and how I’ve voted.”
