Yesterday, the North Beach News forwarded a question from a reader: “I would like to see a article on why Eric Noble is running for position 1 instead of position 7 where he is now. Did he do this because Rich Hartman knew he couldn’t beat Susan? Was Eric made the sacramental lamb?” After a bit of a back and forth with Noble, he replied “I have posted a blog on my website, under the blog tab that answers the question.” Indeed, at http://www.voteericnoble.com, he posted the following yesterday evening:
“Why is Eric Noble switching from Council Position 7 to Position 1?”
This is a question that has been asked numerous times. It is interesting that this has happened in past elections, yet no one had asked why other council members switched in the same way I am. That alone is worth looking into.
I am running for Ocean Shores City Council Position 1 because I want to be on a council that gets things done. It is always crucial to listen to people and get as much input as one can from citizens; once all the information is gathered, a decision should be made. Not everyone might agree with that decision, but at the end of the day we need to move the city forward.
It has been difficult at best over the last 18 months to get much done. There has been a great deal of chatter about this council not working well together, and to a point I can see that, the last budgeting process is a good example. I do believe I can work with anyone, and my opponent and I have worked well together on the ad hoc committee for the Comprehensive Plan. I also feel that decisions on where the city should be going and how we should get there need to be made.
I am a results-oriented person who listens and then decides. I do feel my opponent listens well but does not make many firm decisions, nor does she take a consistent stand on issues. That is why I am running for Position 1.
