Phil Zietlow, former Mayor of Medina

As a former Medina Mayor and Council Member, I heartily endorse Kathy Martin to continue as our Mayor of Medina. Our city has been blessed to have a history of excellent mayors who have led our city to the place we are today. I believe Kathy is the best person to continue that tradition.

In my opinion there are three keys to maintaining our great city:

  1. Keep Medina’s rural character by controlling our growth.

  2. Support our city staff to keep our city safe and our infrastructure (roads, parks, water systems, and fire departments) working well.

  3. Keep our city tax rate low.

Kathy is very astute to the importance of keeping our city budget controlled.  She does this by working closely with our excellent staff to inspire them to provide good services without extra frills. She has excellent rapport with our police and fire departments. Lastly, she has a ton of experience negotiating with the Met Council to keep our growth reasonable.

I urge you to vote for Kathy Martin as our mayor of Medina.
