Andrae McGary - Public Servant And Committed Father - And Response

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Being the wife of a politician is no easy task. Daily you watch your husband do his best to make things better. You also witness people say and do some of the nastiest things in return.

 Sometimes, but not often, people tell Andrae' he is doing a good job, which means so much to him. I know Andrae is not perfect, 13 years of marriage has taught me that. But this I know: I know of no man who is a more committed father to their children and who daily seeks God's direction and power to serve other people--some of whom he has never met. It is a joy to explain to our children what their father does. I know he is leaving a legacy of service for them to follow.

Truly, in the grand scheme of things, there are some things more important than winning or losing elections. Elections can be lost, but having a record of actually helping people is something no one can take away from you. I have watched him embody the title "public servant", and I have, and will continue to support him. I ask you to join me, as he continues daily to serve us all, by casting your vote for him. And sometimes, if you feel led, please take a moment and encourage him as he strives to be the best District 8 City Councilman he can be.

I would like to comment on the service of District 8 Mr Andrae McGary. We are a local business in District 8, and have had an on going issue with the street sweeping on 28th Street. The gutters were full to running over along the road side. All calls to 311 were answered about the roadway condition. A sweeper was dispatched but you couldn't tell that anything was accomplished.  

Out of frustration I called Mr. McGary. By that afternoon I had a response from him and the following day the city dispatched a sweeper and the results were exceptional this time.  

I would like to say thank you again, Mr. McGary. This was the first contact, no run around, just results. 

This is the type of leadership we need in our district , and were fortunate to have you. You have our support.
