I briefly wanted to take some time to say thank you to all of those who have voiced their opinions in regards to the recent tax rate. No matter what side you were on, I can promise you that all of your opinions where heard. It is privilege to represent you the citizens and to work with so many people whose number one priority is doing what is best for Stephenville.

As we move forward, I challenge all of us as citizens to stay engaged, educated and informed, because failure to do so will only result in our own demise. I am more optimistic than ever that we as a city will continue to achieve great things and reach new heights. Lastly, my doors are always open and I will always make time to listen to those who have elected me to be their representative.

Respectfully,

Brady Pendleton,

Stephenville City Council, Place 5
