Mayor Julie Hallman
"I am so excited to be able to serve the City I have loved and lived in for 53 years of my 57 years! I graduated from Grant High School, as did my parents, children, and many other family members. I served as a City Commissioner for about 20 years before running for Mayor. You can see that I am very vested in the area.
Over the years, my husband and I have served the community in lots of areas. We have both coached sports in the little league groups, and I have worked with Girl Scouts, provided daycare and volunteered at the schoos and church. I currently serve as Vice President and representative for the teacher aides in the support staff union with Grant Public Schools, where I have been employed for23 years in a variety of positions. The students at the building I work in were so excited to hear I am the Mayor and want to know what a Mayor does. They asked if I feel and if I am going to quit being the "Library Lady." I told them "No I don't" and "Not at this time!" It is so great to see them interested and learning about our local government!
Please feel free to contact me through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or thru the City's here. I will TRY to check it often. My cell is 730-3806. While I cannot promise to solve every issue, I can promise to listen and get back to you with what I find out. Sometimes a compromise is the best we can do...I heard once that a good compromise is a solutionwhere neither party is 100% happy."
