Michael J. Ballistrea for Mayfield Heights City Council
Ballistrea is looking to enhance the community in several different ways, such as obtaining land for new recreation facilities in the future, improving city park facilities and promoting upkeep of older buildings to keep high property values.
He is also interested in reviewing legislation and codified ordinance that may be outdated.
“Some examples would be retail parking requirements, charter changes to include mayoral primary and tougher legislation on texting while driving,” he said.
Ballistrea will look to “have a more open dialogue with the (Mayfield) Board of Education” if he is elected.
Years of experience, commitment to the city, proven leadership, integrity, high morals and strong family values are just some of the reasons that make him the right candidate for the job, he said.
