Sincerity, genuineness, honesty, transparency and humility are the words that come to mind when I think of the David Dietze I have come to know over the last six years as a two-term member of Common Council.

He’s proven his dedication to our community through thousands of hours of service, most notably on the Board of Education where I had the pleasure of working with him as Chairman of Public Safety, a member of the Public Works Committee, and while serving on the Board of School Estimate. David instinctively understood, regardless of the “type” of school district Summit is, taxpayer dollars are taxpayer’s dollars, and residents expect Common Council and the Board of Education to work together to spend our tax dollars as effectively and efficiently as possible.

He demonstrated this by working closely with Council, while leveraging his in-depth understanding the city’s and the BOE’s finances, to finance significant, and desperately needed, renovations, upgrades and repairs at school facilities, identify opportunities for shared operational expenses and maximize student safety - All while maintaining the excellence of our schools. This experience and expertise will, no doubt, serve our community well with him as a member of Common Council.

Serving on Common Council is both rewarding and challenging. Council members are accountable, directly and immediately, for their actions and decisions. They can’t hide behind their party apparatus or appointed surrogates. During his campaign, despite unprecedented direct attacks from the other side, he has always stood tall, and fully accountable, while never hiding behind anyone. He has proven, over the last four-months, he has the resilience to take the punches and still stand for what he believes without compromising his character.

Vote for proven character and proven experience. Please join me in supporting David Dietze for Summit Common Council at Large.

Patrick Hurley
Member of Summit Common Council

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
