As an active member in the community, father, concerned citizen, and businessman, I’m writing to express my support for Robert Simison for Mayor of Meridian.

I have been a resident of Meridian for 15 years. Meridian is a special place to live, raise my family, and participate in its growth. My observations and interactions with the City of Meridian have been positive, optimistic, and visionary. These are attributes for a successful future, and those which I’ve witnessed by the current City Administration; an Administration that Robert Simison has been a vital part of for nearly as long as I’ve lived in Meridian. I first met Robert while working with the Mayor’s Office on its initiatives to responsibly plan and grow the community. Based on my professional and social interactions, I’ve witnessed Robert’s character, expertise, and family-focus, which have convinced me to fully support him as the next Mayor of Meridian.

I believe Robert is a proven leader with the experience and vision Meridian deserves to continue the momentum and successes that has made Meridian one of ‘America’s 50 best cities’ as reported by USA Today and 24/7 Wall St., among other national periodicals. His 12-year tenure as the Chief of Staff for Mayor Tammy is directly part of this national recognition.

I believe Robert seeks responsible growth, safe neighborhoods, and keeping the City a family focused community. I also trust as Mayor, Robert Simison will manage the city’s growth and be a unique mayor by taking on all responsibilities of the City Government.

I strongly urge your readers to support Robert Simison for Mayor of Meridian. I believe Robert will work with the community and take the City of Meridian to a level unique to its community.

Christopher Jones, Meridian
