As we consider candidates for Bowling Green City Council, it's important to consider an individual's experience outside the political arena. In her 27 years as Regional Director of the Humane Society, Councilwoman Sandy Rowland, worked with federal, state and local agencies on legislation and actions concerning animal health and safety. In this position, Rowland worked with both public and private sectors and coordinated volunteers as well as paid employees. The skills developed in this position are directly applicable to council work.
When her time with the Humane Society ended due to national cuts, Rowland re-invented herself by becoming a local realtor. Since 2006 she has been a successful, high producer with Danberry Realty. Her work in this arena is a testament to her knowledge of the community and her relentless determination.
During her tenure on City Council Rowland has worked tirelessly to keep Bowling Green a safe and vibrant community for all residents. She currently chairs the Parks and Recreation committee where she advocates for additional parks and green space. She is also an active member of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce, advocating to keep businesses in downtown.
As a lifelong resident of Bowling Green, Councilwoman Rowland has a vested interest in keeping Bowling Green a vibrant, safe and welcoming community and in representing all residents. This election day, voters should consider the strong experience and commitment of the candidate in the community when they head to the polls and vote to retain Sandy Rowland as at-large member of BG City Council.
