Data Analyst Announces Candidacy for City Council
Meadville – City Council Candidate Herb Riede is looking forward to the challenge of what he calls, “reviewing a tax system implemented in the 1950s and making it friendly to homeowners and businesses.”
Herb hopes to help the city get past the habit of catching up with old major projects without long-term planning and then simplify and reduce the number of redundant revenue streams. “As a former member of a Boro Council and Mayor, I have experienced writing and passing budgets and have utilized the process to improve constituent services,” Riede said, “I intend to provide creative solutions that helps council to better hold the line on - if not restore - city services without relying on painful tax increases.”
Herb and his fiancé Lisa Fralick will be joined on the trail by their sons Herbie and Seth ages 4 and 11, respectively. Their twin daughters Allie and Abbie are seniors at Meadville Area Senior High and have already committed to Edinboro and Pitt-Titusville for the fall. They are working on the campaign to help their father register new Democrats for the primary and to gain volunteers as they themselves prepare to vote for their own father in their very first election, turning 18 this April.
Herb can be found at HerbRiede.com on Facebook.com/HerbRiede and @HerbRiede on Twitter and his cell is 814-795-9597.
