It’s December 2019. The past eight years Goshen residents have had three opportunities to elect new leadership in our community. Our city is a place where business is booming and revenues are up. The young entrepreneurs of 2011 are now poised to bring solid leadership to a growing and diverse community. Here a just a few more things to celebrate as we approach 2020:
Most of the difficult traffic issues on Goshen’s south side are no longer a big problem, thanks largely to the new bridge over the railroad tracks that connects with CR 17. Some of us say, “Remember when we used to get stuck in traffic?”
Goshen manufacturing companies are offering fair wages to their workers.
Neighborhood associations have members of many different races and ethnic groups working together to make our city stronger.
Racial tensions have mostly subsided because of ongoing efforts by city leaders and residents alike to make Goshen a truly welcoming community, bringing a sense of belonging for people who call Goshen home. Most of us are more engaged with one another than before.
What brought about these exciting developments? When did all this start? Well, those with good memories will recall that a record number of Goshen residents voted on November 8, 2011. That was when they re-elected Mayor Allan Kauffman and other “Working for Goshen” candidates. That election wasn’t the only thing that has made 2019 great in Goshen, but it was an important part of the bigger picture.
The future of any city begins with actively involved citizens who vote for visionary leadership. Working for Goshen candidates will leave our community in better condition for future residents. On November 8 I’m voting for Working for Goshen candidates because I like what I see in 2019.
