To the Editor:
I am writing to express my support for the re-election of Bruce Jeffers as at-large representative to
Bowling Green City Council.
It has been my great pleasure to serve along with Jeffers during his eight-year tenure on city council.
During this time, Jeffers has proven to be a dedicated and hardworking representative for the entire
Bowling Green community.
Jeffers has been a consistent advocate and supporter of the city’s efforts to enrich its sustainable
energy portfolio, and he voted to enable the construction of our solar field, which is currently the
largest in the state of Ohio.
He has been a strong guiding voice as the city has considered issues and opportunities related to
planning, land use and neighborhood revitalization, demonstrating the vision and patience required to
consider these critical, long-range issues.
Jeffers has also been a leader in the development of the city’s Welcome BG initiative. This process,
which is intended to build on council’s resolution designating Bowling Green as welcoming city, provides
exciting opportunities to supplement our local work force, a critical need as we continue to develop our
business community. Jeffers has served on council’s municipal utility committee and the planning and
zoning committee, and he is the current chairman of the finance committee.
He has demonstrated the ability to grasp the many complicated issues and activities that these committees
assume responsibility for. It is my strong opinion that the sum of Jeffers’ experience and demonstrated
leadership qualities makes him the clear choice to continue to serve the citizens of Bowling Green as an
I hope you will join me in voting for Jeffers on May 7.
