City officials resolve to make Cleveland greater

Posted

A fresh start. New goals. A refocus on what's important.

Those are some of the resolutions many Americans are planning for new year – an opportunity to establish good habits, as well as shed some bad ones.

For some city officials, it will be a year of spending more time with family, working on home improvement projects, running marathons, as well as helping Cleveland continue to be a great city in which to live.

Councilman David May said his New Year’s resolution will be to make better use of his time.

“I resolve to stop procrastinating and take immediate action personally and professionally,” May said.

Councilman Ken Webb said he is normally goal driven and refrains from making New Year's resolutions. However, he said he will focus on embarking on several home improvement projects, plus a classroom renovation project at a local church that is just within reach of completion.

“As always, I must take every opportunity to spend time with my family members,” Webb said.

He also said he will work hard to represent all Cleveland residents.

“I must work diligently to serve the citizens of Cleveland in my role on the city council and to be sure all voices are heard on all issues,” Webb said.

Councilman Dale Hughes said he will pray for God to give America, Tennessee, Cleveland and Bradley County peace, safety and prosperity for the new year.

“From a city council standpoint, I trust we can continue to work together to provide an aggressive city [in terms of growth] which is certainly known as one of the absolute best cities in America to live and raise your family!” Hughes said.

Councilman Bill Estes said he will be running. Literally.

“I plan to run the Cleveland Half Marathon in May,” Estes said.

Finally, Cleveland Mayor Kevin Brooks said he will focus on three resolutions:

“I want to be the best husband I can be, the best father I can be and make Cleveland the best small city in Tennessee,” Brooks said.
