Justin Troller for Lakeland City Commission Endorsed by Lakeland Ledger



Of the three candidates, Troller expresses the most concern with the effect of high electric charges on utility customers, and says there must be some way to give relief to those who need it most. Troller says that, while he sees the benefit in the city's general fund being paid dividends to keep property taxes low, he would like to see some of the projected $8 million increase in the dividend in the current budget used to lower electric costs.

While he says he believes the City Commission should retain control of city-owned Lakeland Electric, he seems the most receptive to having an outside study to see if an electric authority might provide a better way to manage the utility.
There are three good choices, but only one vote to be cast. Regardless of the outcome, we hope that all the candidates remain involved in making Lakeland an even better place in which to work, live and play.

The Ledger recommends Justin M. Troller, Lakeland City Commission, at-large Seat 2.

Justin Troller was the only candidate to actually call me in person and ask for my vote, and he got it. Now Mr Troller will you keep your promise or was that just to get elected? I am inclined to think you want to and will fulfill your promise.

Presidential candidates think they have the answers for the country but are not telling anyone or listening to voters.

The stimulus package is just a band-aid for now and what the need is my idea which will be a self refunding program to the banks,health care,economy and put the meaning of GOLDEN back into the golden years. It will also ste up a track of never ending millions going into gov. general fund.

Mr Troller good luck with your campaign promise we are all keeping and eye on the electric bill.
