Welcome to the Circleville Herald, 28 Oct 2003 [cached]
First to address the open forum was Democratic candidate Jean Droste, a 33-year resident of Circleville with a background in local, state and national governments.Droste has been involved in educational issues on a state and local level.She also is a member of several local organizational boards and is a volunteer.
"I want to be a cheerleader for Circleville," Droste said as her reason for seeking the position of mayor."Circleville is a wonderful town and it needs to be promoted and marketed more than it has been."
Droste said one area of her experience which qualifies her for the position of mayor is her six years as Circleville's safety director.During that time she was responsible for 50 percent of the city's employees and more than 40 percent of its budget.
Along with that experience, Droste said she has 18 years of experience negotiating contracts with the Ohio Education Association, Ohio Patrolmen's Association and International Association of Firefighters.
"With the city's current budget situation," Droste said, "this experience will prove very helpful."
Droste's platform includes five goals for Circleville.
Included in those goals is the creation of jobs.Droste said to achieve that goal she will create an economic development council composed of citizens from a variety of local businesses and organizations.
"They will look at what we are doing in Circleville correctly and what maybe we can do to improve," she said.
In important component of serving in a position such as Circleville's mayor, Droste said, is management style and experience.
"If you ask anybody who I worked with in this city they will say that I think you cannot communicate enough with people and people cannot communicate enough with you," she said.
Droste, on the other hand, said she has extensive experience in budgeting.
"When I set up the Ohio Commission for Educational Improvement," she said, "I set that up from scratch, so I have experience in setting up a budget there."
Her 12 years of experience as a school board member also have provided her with budgeting experience, Droste said.
Droste and Spence also were asked about making development and administrative decisions for Circleville.
"I would work positively for the future," Droste said.She then referred back to her goal of creating an economic development council.She also addressed the need for providing consistent treatment and encouragement to developers.
"We need development and we need jobs," she said.
When asked about her extensive traveling in the past and her commitment to the office of Circleville's mayor, Droste said she plans to dedicate herself to the office.
"I have been lucky in the past few years to be able to travel a lot," she said."If I am elected mayor I am going to stay here and work as hard as I can.I think people who know me know when I accept a challenge I work very hard in that position."
Both candidates said they have a vision of maintaining the current quality of life of a small town community in Circleville and an increase in tourism.
Spence and Droste both said Circleville has a lot of potential and they would like to promote that to visitors.
Droste, who has worked with many of the council members in the past, said she will strive for open communication.
"When first in office," she said, "I will have a long conversation with each council member about their goals.
Droste said she too shares the same commitment.
"I believe I am approachable, a good communicator and good listener," she said.
