Cooley and Haemmerle are good for Hailey

As a former mayor, I know how important it is to have elected officials who have vision, compassion and an understanding of the issues facing our community. For this reason, I support Pat Cooley for City Council.

Pat served on the Planning and Zoning commission for six years and understands the impact of decisions one makes as a public official. His leadership as chair guided the city through many difficult decisions during the growth years of the late 1990s and early 2000s. He did not sit on the sidelines, passively listening to the complex discussions—he led them.

Because of his experience and his respect for the process in the public arena, he is my choice.

I support Fritz Haemmerle for mayor because he represents the next generation of leaders in our community. His high-energy debate style and willingness to take a stand on issues great and small are lacking in the current leadership and is a refreshing change to Hailey politics. As a successful businessman and former Blaine County prosecuting attorney, Fritz has the skills necessary to create efficiencies in city services, negotiate complex agreements and analyze the impacts of critical issues such as annexations and water rights. He offers engaged, intelligent leadership.

Please join me in supporting Pat Cooley for City Council and Fritz Haemmerle for mayor for a positive future for Hailey.
