Newly-elected Bay St. Louis City Council member Kyle Lewis takes office in July. In his first council update column, he thanks his constituents and looks ahead to his next four years serving the city.
The trust that the Ward 4 constituents have placed in me to be their voice and represent them with integrity is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I look forward to serving with humble gratitude, and I will take immense pride in effectively serving their needs over the next four years.
Over the past week, I have had the chance to reflect on the past four years and achieving my goal of better versing my knowledge base to best serve as councilman. I am very thankful for the many great opportunities in serving our community, most recently on Planning and Zoning and several local non-profit agencies and effectively applying that experience to the Council.
My goal is to surround myself with positive individuals that inspire me to elevate my management and leadership abilities. I hope that, in turn, I can provide that same effect to my colleagues. I look forward to working with my fellow council members and the administration to yield positive results for all Bay Saint Louis taxpayers.
I believe Bay Saint Louis is at a pivotal point in time, and the decisions made by our council today will have a lasting impact for the landscape of our cherished city.
As the saying goes, “getting elected is the easy part; now the hard work begins.” I want to provide a brief overview of the areas of focus in my upcoming term.
Once again, thank you for the support and I look forward to the opportunity to serve.
Ward 4 Councilman-Elect
