Letter to the Editor: Tommy Davis is best man for job

My name is Wanda Pittman and I have been the right hand to our city’s mayor for the past 21 years. Believe me when I tell you that the job of mayor is not an easy one. Challenges arise on a daily basis and difficult decisions have to be made. I am giving my personal endorsement to our incumbent, Tommy Davis, for a number of reasons.

First of all, Tommy Davis has direct job experience involving all aspects of our city government. I work closely with him on a daily basis and know firsthand of his strong work ethic and effectiveness. He is a hands-on, detail person who reads and studies everything that comes across the desk of the mayor. He knows the inner workings of each department. He possesses that unique ability to manage without micro-managing, allowing the supervisors to do their jobs.

Tommy Davis is an approachable mayor and is open to spend time talking to any citizen. I have seen this firsthand time and again. He is out and about personally, investigating issues and concerns, no matter how big or small. I call him the “Energizer Bunny” mayor and you’d better move fast to keep up with him. I don’t think anybody could love this city or their job as much as Tommy Davis does.

Most importantly to me, Tommy Davis is a Godly man. It is reassuring to know that he begins every day praying for our city and asking God for guidance. Our country needs more leaders with strong Christian values. I am so thankful that Minden has this kind of leader, a mayor who is anchored in his faith, who studies the issues, does the homework, uses the statewide network that he has built and gets the job done.

Tommy Davis is an effective leader that gest results. I trust him with our city and I believe in him as our mayor. He is qualified for the job and is a proven leader. I urge you to support Tommy Davis and give him four more years to move Minden forward.

Wanda V. Pittman
