Where do we go from here?

When I first ran for Mayor in 2005, I had never been on council and knew little about how municipal government worked. My vision consisted of little more than being fiscally responsible, fixing our terrible infrastructure, listening to residents, and running an honest and ethical administration. That has not changed and will not change but we have done so much more.

While I may be biased, I think the town is being well run, in accordance with our objectives, but now with almost 16 years of experience, I think we can do better, much better. We have an opportunity to improve Hampstead as never before.

If you have any comments or questions on this topic or anything else related to Hampstead, please contact me seven days a week until midnight.

Sincerely,
Dr. Bill Steinberg
Mayor, Town of Hampstead
