Now that the effort to recall me as the mayor of Ketchum has ended, I request that we collectively look to the future and focus our energy on working together to create the opportunities and success we all want for our community.
I want to thank all of you who supported me during this ordeal. Your encouragement has strenthened my commitment to serve and helped me to remain focused on the issues and tasks at hand.
I want those who signed the recall petition to know I have heard your messages. I promise to give strong consideration to your issues and concerns. The divisiveness needs to end. The hard-working members of the council, the P&Z, the extremely capable city staff and I ask you to work with us in a constructive manner and with positive energy.
We face difficult times and hard decisions that will shape our future. Since the beginning of my term, my guiding principle has been to achieve growth with sensitivity to the environment that creates a vibrant downtown core and an enhanced quality of life. I continue to work towards this goal.
I know change is hard, sometimes challenging, and I am sure there will be issues on which there will be disagreement. In these cases, I respectfully ask that we remain civil and agree to disagree.
Going forward I intend to make a report at the beginning of each council meeting. My report will include updates and news on issues the city is working on, the progress being made and the accomplishments we have achieved. Between council meetings, please contact me with your questions and/or comments via cell at (208) 720-5318 or e-mail me at email@example.com. I am working on other initiatives to create access and visibility.
Mayor Randy Hall
