Investing in a community. It's what we expect from our local officials. Sandy Milligan is a person who has invested in Bowling Green her entire life. A lifelong resident and, for over 25 years, the owner of Milligan Workshops Inc., she has provided employment, tax dollars and economic development to our city. She knows small business and its importance to Bowling Green.
Bowling Green weathered the recent economic downturn without severely limiting services or laying off employees due in part to a diverse business environment that includes Milligan Workshops. Understanding the needs of the business community while balancing the interests of citizens is what Sandy Milligan brings to the table. As a lifelong resident she knows this community. As a business owner she knows the important place business plays in maintaining the city services residents rely upon.
As a business owner Milligan understands what it takes to make hard decisions and to stick by them. The same intelligent, thoughtful and careful process she has undertaken in running a successful business, in both good and bad economic environments, makes her uniquely qualified to serve on council.
Beyond her business experience Milligan has invested in the Bowling Green community in many other ways. She is currently a member of the Bowling Green Board of Zoning Appeals. She is a member of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce Executive Board, serving as treasurer. She has worked on the American Cancer Society Volunteer Leadership Council, serving as vice president of that organization. She recently served as transportation chair for Project Homeless Connect. She is active with maintaining Downtown Bowling Green's flowers and plantings and is a recent graduate of Leadership BG.
Your vote is an investment in the future. I recommend that voters in Bowling Green invest their trust in a person who has proven herself worthy by investing her time and talents into this community. Vote for Sandy Milligan for council at large and make an investment that will yield rewards for years to come.
