Summer is becoming a memory, school starts again for our children, and it is a time of new beginnings. For me, the campaign to become a second ward town councilman accelerates into full swing.
I have spent the last several months canvassing my ward, which encompasses Washington and part of Wilson school districts as well as a swath below South Avenue, listening to concerns about cars accelerating unchecked in residential areas. I hear repeated complaints about road safety, poor road conditions or poorly lighted intersections. Many times these complaints have been lodged with the town council to little effect. Residents in each district of my ward have noted specific areas of concern and have let me know that they have made suggestions regarding improvements. Many of their suggestions, such as speed bumps near playgrounds, seem reasonable and likely to prevent potential problems.
As dusk begins to come earlier, it is a reminder that we must be dedicated to proper street lighting, paving and curbing, speed control and clear signage to avoid ANY more pedestrian deaths or injuries. We must take action to address the concerns of the people living in the community who experience these road conditions and problems daily. There is no margin for error.
Please vote for me, Mike Dardia, on Nov. 7 to make the streets in Ward 2 safer for our families.
Ward 2 Town Council Candidate
