Dear Mayor,
I am writing you today concerning a recent vacancy in the city planning commission.
I have lived in Johnson since Augrist of 1999 and have witnessed significant changes to
the city's infrastructure. I am keenly aware the population growth of Johnson will
increase substantially in the next five to ten years. I, like many of my neighbors, share
the opinion that the city of Johnson should be more than a community with a short-cut
from Joyce Street to interstate forty-nine; it should be a city with destination points of
interest.
My family enjoys the quaint aspects of Johnson, but we know changes will occur to our
city. For this and the preceding reasons, I would like to have a part in the future growth
of the city of Johnson. I am asking for consideration as a candidate for the vacant
position on the city planning commission. Please advise me as to the proper procedure
of application for this position. Thank You.
Sincerely,
Gregg Gainer
