Mock Mayer Speech: Honesdale

Citizens of Honesdale, are  you sick and tired of the lack of things to do in this town? Are you sick of all the constant road work being done? Would you like a nicer looking Honesdale? Of course you would. I know I have wanted all these things for as long as I have lived here, which has been 21 years by the way. This is probably a short amount of time compared to most people who have lived here 35 to 45 years or longer. Its time for a change, a change that will make Honesdale a place were people all over Pennsylvania will want to come and visit.

First and foremost the first thing I would like to do as mayor, is re construct all the parks in Honesdale. I remember growing up and playing kick ball in park square, and playing on the monkey bars. I also remember sliding down the big yellow twisty slide and going on the marry-go-round at the old Storbridge school. These are very fond memories I had growing up, and I would like to continue that for the children of Honesdale.

I would like to continue putting trees and flowers throughout main street making Honesdale look better and more appealing to everyone. This will encourage more people to walk down main street and visit our many locally owned stores.

Lastly, I will propose a plan to build a indoor sports complex. This will provide children of all ages to engage in their individual sports all year round, from playing soccer, basketball, football, tennis, ultimate frisbee or just a driving range for golf in the winter. Having this indoor sports complex will bring loads of other sports teams to Honesdale and help boost our economy.

These are just a few ideas I have in the works for Honesdale, and many more to come if I get elected as mayor. As mayor you can bet that I will make Honesdale a proud place to live in and a proud place to call your home. So make Honesdale shine and vote for me as mayor of this town, with a little work, we can make Honesdale a better place for everyone.
