Jay Stooksberry has shown in several ways that he has the ability, desire and leadership skills to be the person we need for a position on our city council. As an at-large representative, Jay has reached out to many residents to hear their concerns. I have been interested in what solutions he also has to offer. These solutions are forward thinking for our community as we transition and grow. Delta wants to attract people to our area. Others, who also want to invest in our community, will be those who stay and raise their families, attend our schools and open new businesses.
As a former business owner of CB's Tavern on Main Street, Jay has experienced some of the challenges that come along with small business ownership and he wants changes for those that will come after him. I have found Jay to be willing to listen to all sides of an issue and I appreciate his representation on the chamber board where he advocates thoughtfully and with purpose for the existing businesses in our community. His tireless involvement in the community through organizations such as Region 10, the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce and as a planning commissioner for the City of Delta, to name just a few, shows that he is a man of service and integrity who truly wants the best for Delta. I respect the time and effort that he has already put into our community and I look forward to where his experience can take us. I know he will continue to serve the council and constituents with the same passion he exhibits in all of his endeavors.
