“Our city needs a leader who is willing to put his ego aside and work with a council, city managers, workers and residents to find long-term solutions to our city’s problems,” he said.
“Our city needs a master plan created and implemented in order to properly allocate our time, energy and resources toward attainable strategic goals.”
Tiffer said his involvement with the city’s Green Committee and the City Planning Board have helped him learn to “cooperate, communicate and collaborate with residents, managers and business owners.
“I am not only ready to work for you, but I am also ready to work with you and all other stakeholders,” he said.
Rosenquest, who moved back to Plattsburgh after living and operating businesses in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest the past 14 years, said the city needs a mayor who is “focused on a long-term vision and who has the education and experience to implement that vision.
“Plattsburgh’s future is at stake, and you have a say as to how our future turns out. Now is the time to fulfill what’s possible for Plattsburgh,” he said.
One issue Rosenquest is focusing on is the city’s waterfront.
“From day one, I’ve spoken about being stewards of our own waterfront, providing a future for our children, using innovation to deliver government services more effectively, and community and economic development as a means to lower taxes,” he said.
“Not only have I spoken about all of these things, I’ve laid out a clear plan, which includes local and regional partnerships, being fiscally responsible by investing our resources for our future, engaging our youth and creating Plattsburgh to be the cultural and economic heart of the North Country.”
Rosenquest said his independent candidacy would enable him to be a voice for all.
