City Council 2013: Kendale Schwering

CENTERVILLE — 1. What is your background? Job(s), family, education, expertise, qualifications, etc.: I am a 26-year-old resident of Centerville. I have a handsome 5-year-old son that I am very proud of. I come from a very large, strong and proud family. I have worked mainly construction or mechanical jobs. My expertise is never being afraid of taking anything head-on. My qualifications are not being afraid to get my hands dirty.

2. Why should people vote for you?: People should vote for me because I am a young, strong-willed person. There has been many complaints over the years and if a person has something willing to stand up and go to bat for them, then I believe that said people should stand behind the person willing to put in the work. I don't care about how much of a reputation a person has or does not have. If it's good for the people, I'm here for the people.

3. What do you hope to accomplish if you are (re) elected?: I hope to bring trust back to the community leaders. I hope to let the peoples voice be heard and followed through on. I want people to feel like they have and their opinion that matters when it comes to community issues. I want to strive for equality. I want to help push out personal agendas because this is a community. Everyone matters.

4. What are some of the main issues facing the community and where do you stand on them?: Excessive, ridiculous law making. My stand on stupid laws, is just that. If they're excessive or ridiculous, then we don't need it. People have everyday problems in this community like outrageous water bills. I could care less if you park your car upside down in your yard. We have bigger issues.

The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"
