Letters: Grim is right choice for District 1

Posted

When I think about which District 1 candidate is the only choice for the Surprise City Council, Ray Grim is the right person for the job.

Ray has been a leader in Surprise for over 20 years and is an experienced volunteer, city commissioner, chamber member, husband and father. For District 1 and all of Surprise, Ray represents all residents and has a perspective to match no other, both with families and with seniors.

With his service as a member of the Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce, he is guiding the growth and development of the city and especially is advocating for the road infrastructure in his district.

For most Surprise residents, the convenience of moving around the city is easy but for District 1, this part of Surprise has limited roads and many are dirt and undeveloped. He will work to bring the needed infrastructure to District 1 and enhance the quality of life, too.

As a business owner and active participant in city recreation, I met Ray and played on his men’s softball team for over seven years. I had the opportunity to see his competitive efforts with excellence as an athlete but also as a person of character. 

Next, as a Surprise Planning and Zoning Commissioner for the city, I witnessed Ray’s desire to learn and be an active citizen to help guide the growth of the city. With this desire, and the limited development of infrastructure in his district, he wants to lead the efforts and has the experience working with city council leaders to deliver it. 

Of all of the candidates running for office in the city of Surprise, no one has educated themselves like Ray with the completion of City Academy, HOA Academy, participation in council activities, chamber committee leadership, service in the Christian church and a volunteer in kids programs.

Knowing his preparation, leadership experience and personability in the city of Surprise, I endorse him and encourage all District 1 residents to elect Ray Grim for the city council.

SURPRISE
