Reader's view: Stauber will best protect taxpayers' interests

I have served in numerous community capacities and have followed local politics for many years. And I have come to appreciate the work done by some elected officials. Jim Stauber has been one of them.

I have served in numerous community capacities and have followed local politics for many years. And I have come to appreciate the work done by some elected officials. Jim Stauber has been one of them.

Stauber is willing to meet with the public and responds quickly when contacted. His demeanor is always civil, and he keeps debates focused on the issues and not personalities. I value someone like Stauber who does his homework. He has worked tirelessly to resolve numerous city problems and has presented far more legislation that has passed into our code than any other councilor in recent years.

While his fiscally conservative views often have been in the minority on the council, Stauber could always be relied upon to protect taxpaying citizens by challenging every tax or fee increase and by objecting to running the government on borrowed money. The burden of this debt is going to be on the backs of our children and grandchildren. He believes we need to slow down on the spending until we can afford the expense.

I am supporting Jim Stauber in his effort to continue his service in the special St. Louis County election on Jan. 14.
