Why does Linda Lloyd deserve your VOTE for City Council ?
My #1 priority is to listen to the residents of the City of Bella Vista and to help create the City you deserve. An OPEN DOOR POLICY along with an open mind is of prime importance. I have innovative ideas from my previous education and employment and I am concerned about how the City should move forward.
I see Bella Vista as a three legged stool or table. One leg is the City of Bella Vista, one leg is the Bella Vista Village POA, and the other leg is Cooper Communities. The top of the table is the people of Bella Vista (Bella Vistans ?). My central philosophy is that all three of these entities have to realize that each of our goals should be the healthy and abundant future of Bella Vista and that only by working together toward shared goals can we provide a happy and prosperous future. If one of the three legs goes weak, then the people suffer.
Cooperation through listening and being responsive will be the benchmark of my term as a Councilman.
Starting a City from scratch is an incredibly difficult job. Those that have served before me have given us a good stable platform on which to continue to move forward and create the City that is wanted by its residents and property owners.
I am experienced in planning, marketing, business development, people skills, working with non-profits and even grant availability and management. In addition to my Master's degree in Regional Planning, I have worked in private industry as a shop foreman and also as a management consultant. I have been a licensed Realtor for over 48 years and I have worked in the non-profit and the municipal world. In Pennsylvania I was Executive Director of a neighborhood non-profit Housing Development organization. In Vermont, I was Executive Director of a Planning District that worked with three towns to secure federal grants for everything from trails to sewer projects. This combination of education and experience gives me a strong foundation on which to move forward for the benefit of the City of Bella Vista.
The weeks until the November election will be spent meeting with and listening to the people of Bella Vista. I will be working hard to earn your vote.
Thank you for your consideration.
