James McGowan has declared his candidacy for the position of City Council Member of District 2. He, is starting his campaign by reaching out to you, his friends, and the leaders in our communities.
Mr. McGowan is a retired educator, a City Council Member For 8 terms and presently a deputy sheriff of St. Clair County. During those years, he has helped to make a difference in the continued growth of our great city. That time frame allowed him the privilege to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore for 14 years and Council President for 8 years.
He acknowledges this year that we are experiencing global, ideological, and atmospheric changes and he feels that a person with experiences of the past is most capable and equipped to successfully move into this new phase of change with experience, continuity, and true commitment.
Looking back from past years and continually pressing forward, Mr. McGowan has been a significant part of tremendous growth and progressive changes in our city.
These changes have not only opened doors for population growth in our city, but economic growth by expanding existing businesses and opening new ones; and quality of life with many cultural, professional, indoor and outdoor activities. Growth comes with planning and planning comes with experience.
"I have experienced and supported much growth in the city that I love and have received much support from you over the years. I am asking you again for your support which gives me the will, strength, and power to continue to work for our home town!"
"I solicit your vote on August 25, 2020."
