Let me start off by saying that I have lived in the Oak Harbor area for most of my life and I have always wondered what where and how this city operates. I see the Oak Harbor municipal vehicles driving back and forth through the city and I never could understand what all of these people were doing for our city. This great mystery has now been addressed.
Mayor Scott Dudley’s State Of The City address certainly shed some light on all of this. It was the first time that I have ever seen one of our Mayors or anyone else in Oak Harbor public service give such a comprehensive explanation about where our tax dollars go, how the tax dollars are used and how the city operates to benefit the citizens of Oak Harbor.
It is certainly nice to see the Mayor present the state of our city and a few visions for the future. This is what all of our citizens need to have confidence in the leaders we have chosen to run our city.
I really have to commend Mayor Dudley for making this first historic State of the City Address, it was a real benefit to the citizens of our City and I certainly hope that this will become an annual event in the future and continues for all of our future Mayors.
Please take the time to view this State of the City Address here on the Oak Harbor city website. The address is presented in 3 parts, 1- State of the City Introduction 2- State of the City Address 3- Questions, be sure to view all parts of the series. I would encourage all of those people that did not attend the meeting and do view this presentation to direct any comments directly to the Mayor himself at email@example.com . Mayor Dudley always responds to citizens e mails.
