Mayor Candidate: Ed Smith running in City of Greenwood

City of Greenwood: Smith, Ed - Council Candidate

Ed Smith

My wife Jan, and I, moved to Greenwood in April 2008 to build our retirement home, sit back and relax, and enjoy the beauty. We love the area and the people we have met. We are here to stay.

The decision to run for the office as mayor was not taken lightly and was not done or made for any one particular reason. It was done for a number of reasons.

We were surprised to find, that as beautiful as Greenwood is, it was being run without any real leadership or business system – the local government lacked openness and transparency and appeared to feel no need for accountability.

I have worked in upper management on mega projects around the world and I have sat on the board of directors for many volunteer organizations including the Lions and the Foster Parents Association. Currently I am a director of the West Boundary Community Forest Inc. representing the City of Greenwood.

What I want to see is the City of Greenwood run as a business. I want to see Council work as a team and become productive. I have the experience and the knowledge to run effective meetings and to get things done.

I believe that I am on side with every voter when I say that what we here in Greenwood really want is a Safe Clean and Vibrant City run as a business for the benefit of all the Citizens.
