Name: Samuel Pierce
City of Residence: Troy, Ohio
Party Affiliation: Republican
Office Sought: Troy City Council Ward 3
Why should you be elected?
I am seeking office to benefit my fellow residents of Troy in the Third Ward. As a husband and father with children growing up in Troy City Schools, I desire to see a continuance of Troy being one of the best communities in the area and for each person to enjoy what our city has to offer.
Top Three Priorities:
1. Connecting with those living within the Third Ward. I want to communicate with the people. I want to hear their stories and learn what improvements they want to continue to see in the Third Ward and in Troy. I have started this process by knocking on doors, talking with residents on porches, mailing notes and information after I am in their neighborhoods. I desire to continue connecting with the residents to know how best to represent them and want to strengthen community ties.
2. As a person committed to the healthcare profession, my goal is to see quality of life improvements. Following appropriate safety guidelines, this includes: health and safety, recreation, and volunteer community programs. These are all helpful in encouraging mental and physical health.
3. I always want to be cognizant that each dollar spent of Troy citizens money represents the hard work and determination of the individuals. I want to make sure that these resources are utilized with good governance and transparency.
