Ronald W. Wiech for Middlefield Village Council
Wiech has been on Middlefield Village Council for four years. His future goals include supporting existing industrial, retail and manufacturing businesses and attracting new ones without raising taxes.
“I am currently a member of the Economic Development Committee formed in 2012,” he said. “Since the inception, we created a new website with a residential and business page. We have attracted new business to Middlefield and filled vacant buildings. O’Reilly’s Auto Parts is building a new facility slated for 2014. We annexed 205 acres into the village to increase industrial/commercial business to create future job opportunities.”
Wiech said he also will continue to research ideas to support the Cardinal School District, since the educational system directly impacts business attraction, property values and confidence in the community.
