Meet the Candidates, Bay Village Ward 3: Gary Sharp
My name is Gary Sharp and I am running for Bay Village City Council – Ward 3. Here’s why. I love where I live! After serving honorably in the US Navy for 10 years and being decorated for heroics in the Gulf War, I want to now serve Bay Village Ward 3.
We have lived in Bay Village for 26 years. My grandchildren are now being raised here. Like us, families live here, pay taxes here and raise families here. They should be afforded a voice in City matters that directly affect their life and future here.
I am actively involved in my Church serving Kids Ministry, in my city as an Auxiliary Police Officer and stay active in the Community by attending City Council meetings and openly discussing matters before the Council.
Communication between city government and the residents is so important and citizens should be aware and invited to speak about matters going before Council. There is currently a void in our Ward that I promise to bridge. If you want a voice and a direct link to your Councilman, I am your choice.
I want to focus on fiscal responsibility and work hard to not only maintain our current excellent services but ensure that we are prepared to evolve as our world changes. Council needs to be proactive as much as possible. Please vote for me in the Sept. 14 Primary and propel us to a victory in November. Always love where you live!
