Ozark, Mo -- We all have heard this many times before, but I cannot believe it has been six months since I was elected to serve as the Mayor of Ozark. People ask me all the time if I am enjoying being mayor. For me, it is a privilege to serve the people of Ozark.
With my life experiences, the administrative skills the Lord has given me, and the people skills I have developed over the years as a pastor, I believe I am more than adequately prepared to serve as mayor. Yes, I have had a learning curve, but that would be with any new position a person would start. I have learned that our city is so blessed with such wonderful employees in all the various city departments. They're people who love this city and want what is best for its citizens. Hopefully, the directors are not getting too tired of all the many questions I have asked them these last six months.
I have the privilege to serve with six great city aldermen. I appreciate the various life experiences they each bring to our meetings and the thoughtful questions they raise during the Board of Aldermen meetings on behalf of the citizens of Ozark. Probably my biggest surprise has been that there are A LOT of meetings the mayor needs to attend. But, as we all know, this position comes with great responsibility, and I enjoy each of those meetings as each time I gain a deeper understanding of our town and deeper respect for what it takes to keep it running successfully and for the people who make that possible.
The promises I made while campaigning for the mayorship, in that I would do what is best for the City of Ozark and I would give 100% as your mayor, continue to be my priority and I am doing my best to fulfill them on your behalf every day.
Thank you for the honor of serving as your mayor for the City of Ozark.
- Mayor Don Currence
