Re-elect Marc San Soucie to the Beaverton City Council on May 20!
Hello, Beaverton neighbors. I am running for re-election to the City Council, so I can continue to serve the City of Beaverton, and so we can keep Beaverton excellent.
What a great place Beaverton is these days! Since the Community Vision was gathered, most actions have been started or finished; by the city, by partner agencies and community organizations, and by our active volunteers. Beavertonís character and capacity are advancing along the path set by your ideas.
Iíve enjoyed working to move Beaverton forward in harmony with your aspirations. Iíve worked hard to be a professional, collaborative leader, while managing our city finances carefully. I feel a great sense of responsibility for this work.
Itís not all perfect. We still have people in need, some struggling businesses, and physical challenges that we have to address. We have to tackle problems and take advantage of opportunities without straining our financial resources, or yours.
Thoughtful, Prepared, Professional
The job of city councilor is to be an open-minded, always listening, proactive cheerleader for the city, offering ideas and perspective to the Mayor, staff, and partners on how best to accomplish city goals, while keeping a knowledgeable eye on city projects and the budget to insure that we make best use of our resources. Plus, explain in clear language how weíve come to our conclusions and decisions.
This requires good listening, good procedures, and good execution. We have to make sure our neighborhoods and business areas continuously improve and stay excellent.
I am committed to remain a thoughtful, prepared, and professional Councilor for Beaverton.
Passionate for Beaverton
Iím proud that I worked with the Mayor to expand the role of the City Council, so we are now an active participant in policy-making and funding considerations well before we get to final decisions.
Iím proud that I convinced City Hall to build our Capital Improvement Plan in a new manner. In 2014 residents will begin contributing meaningfully to decisions about how to spend millions of city dollars.
Iím proud to have led the work to start and fund our Civic Plan. Iím proud to have helped with our plans for business recruitment and marketing. Iím proud to have established priority in our transportation plans for a walkable downtown and neighborhoods. Iím proud that I helped start up our International Celebration, which continues to grow and bring our community together.
Working for All of Beaverton
This is a busy city, and I always work to contribute to our success. I love Beavertonís great neighborhoods, great schools, great parks, and its fabulous diversity of people and cultures. I want to focus our civic work on the people who make up our wonderful and varied community.
Iíve worked to improve Beaverton's government, neighborhoods, arts and social culture, transportation, and environment. Iíve worked to manage our finances and infrastructure efficiently. I've increased opportunities for you to offer us guidance as we make decisions. I project the Cityís positive self image to partners and prospects in an enthusiastic, energizing way.
Iíll keep working to to be creative, persuasive, and innovative, suggesting ideas or alternative approaches to problems and opportunities. We have many great opportunities ahead of us, and Iíll keep working to make them happen.
I'm Positive, Professional, and Develop Great Partnerships
None of this is easy, but I will do my part to get the vital work done. I offer the experience and leadership skills gained over my long professional and volunteer career.
I've served Beaverton residents in a number of ways - on the Planning Commission, the Committee for Citizen Involvement, and as a representative to the Joint Water Commission. I help my NAC, I help the Chamber of Commerce, and I help the city and its partners with a number of its public events and projects. I do this because I love Beaverton, and am very happy to give my time.
