Four years ago, you supported my election to the Woodbury City Council.
Today, I am announcing my intention to file for re-election in the fall election — and I ask for your continued support.
It has been a rewarding and humbling experience to serve you. We have a terrific community to call home. We each share the opportunity and responsibility to maintain and improve our community assets. I believe Woodbury’s best days are yet to come!
For the past 16 years, my family and I have lived in Woodbury. I have seen many of you around town over those years.
Maybe I coached your son during one of my 11 years as head coach in the WAA baseball program.
Maybe it was on the football field where I coached for five seasons and now enjoy watching from the sidelines.
Maybe it was at an event sponsored by our faith community. My family and I have been active members of Saint Ambrose since its founding in our community and in those early days, I served six years on the parish finance council and helped start the men’s club.
Maybe it was a Chamber of Commerce event. I served seven years on the board of directors for the chamber and as chair during 2001.
Maybe it was at City Hall. Prior to my election to the city council, I served for eight years on various economic development groups, including four years as chair of the Economic Development Commission and chair of the Housing Task Force for three years.
I’m sure I’ve seen you around town.
My community involvement exceeds the boundaries of Woodbury. In my professional life, I represent my employer on several non-profit boards throughout the metro area.
In addition, for nine years I served on the University of Wisconsin, River Falls Foundation board of directors including two years as chair.
Recently, I joined the South Washington County (ISD 833) Education Foundation board of directors.
In 2003, I was humbled to be honored as “Citizen of the Year” by the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce.
Four years ago, I campaigned committing to preserve and protect our community assets, manage growth, be fiscally responsible and focus on economic development. We made progress on each of these, but the best our community has to offer is yet to come.
If you have questions or comments, please e-mail, call, or provide feedback online at www.rebholz4woodbury.com.
I ask for your support in my re-election efforts and I hope you’ll tell everyone you know around town to vote REBHOLZ4WOODBURY on Nov. 4.
