My name is Dan Brown and I would like to be the Mayor of Bellaire, Ohio.

On Nov. 5th, 2013 I will be asking for your vote to be the executive leader of the village of Bellaire. For the first time in many years you have a clear choice in the Mayoral race for the village of Bellaire.

Each candidate has their strengths. I believe that any vote cast in this election is a vote for Bellaire.

Bellaire needs jobs. I can help bring in companies to provide those jobs. I already have experience in this .

Bellaire needs to be a city once again. This will improve the amount of state and federal funding available to us as well as access to grants.

Bellaire needs to be OPEN FOR BUSINESS once again. We need people who want to bring in business, will listen to their wants and needs and help to accomplish both the villages and businesses goals when deciding to relocate here.

Bellaire needs a good plan. We need to find a way to make the reactionary system that is in place now morph into a pro-active stance for the future. We do not need people to talk about it, we need people to do it.

Most of all Bellaire needs their police department to be the best it can possibly be. That includes pay as well as respect. I feel they are our 1st line of defense, and should be treated as such.

My name is Dan Brown, and I look forward to your vote on Nov. 5th as well as 4 years of dedicated service to the improvement of the city of Bellaire, Ohio.
