Bob Valdatta

Seward has miles and miles of water, sewer, roads and electrical infrastructure, much of which needs repair or replacement. How would you rank the need for attention in those areas and, if elected, what would you propose to address any or all of these issues?

I’d change it around. What can the people do for the community? There’s junk cars in the right of way. They mow their lawns and throw the stuff in the street. I think the city is doing more than its share and going way out. It’s one of those things. They’ll step on the city’s buttons, but on when it comes to them, they’ll get around to it whenever.

What should the city do to meet the needs of the citizens?

The roads could use some patching and the electrical is up to city administration to keep up on. If there’s a pothole in front of your house, get out there and put some dirt in it yourself. That’s what we use to do in the old days. We’ve put in for as much money and grants as we can and we can’t do much more with what we got. It’s time for the non profits to come up with some bread. They’re using all the facilities, all the streets and they’re getting off scott free.
