Knowledge and Experience for the Role

Next month, we will be voting for Council representatives here in Summit. Mike Wattick has demonstrated the passion, drive and skills required to continue the path of improving our great community. Mike is an established resident here in Summit having moved here 17 years ago with his young bride. They have established roots adding 4 children, plus relocating and growing his financial services practice to Summit. Mike has spent a considerable amount of time volunteering in the community including serving as Chairman of the Summit Red Cross, President of the Summit Tax Payer Association, not to mention being an avid coach for his children’s sports teams. He has shown the leadership and drive to step up to a role I recently won, Summit Common Council, Ward II.

Mike and I have spent a lot of time discussing issues we face in Summit including our relationship with Union County and how it affects our tax burden, as well as potholes, condition of parks, and so much more.  He is very well informed and makes a significant contribution to furthering the conversation around key issues.  He does so with the background of business and personal success. Mike brings a strong financial background to the table running his successful and local, financial services business.  Mike understands the responsibility of Council to make the smart decisions that affect our community’s services, reputation and checkbook.

On the political front, much of the focus has been centered on the national political climate, however, our local elections deserve our focus too. Mike’s experience and commitment to Summit is what we need today and tomorrow to truly make an impact and continue the community sense of pride.

As a Summit Common Councilman, I want someone who has a lifetime of leadership, experience making well thought out decisions and has the ability to listen, so those decisions are good ones for Summit. I encourage Summit to elect Mike Wattick to Summit Common Council Ward 2.

Steve Bowman, Summit Common Councilman Ward 2
