There is something special about living here in Huntington. For Barb and me it has been the best place to raise and educate our three daughters. As the next mayor of Huntington, a big part of my vision is for our city to be known as “The Best Place . . . ”
The Best Place . . . to get well (Parkview Huntington Hospital — A Top 100 Hundred Hospital)
The Best Place . . . to start, expand or relocate a business (Strong Economic Efforts by our Chamber of Commerce and Huntington United Economic Development)
The Best Place . . . to stay healthy (State-of-the-art YMCA and United Way Health and Wellness programs)
The Best Place . . . to get an education (Huntington University, Indiana Tech, Huntington County Community Schools)
The Best Place . . . to enjoy a show (The New Huntington Theatre, Huntington North High School Drama and Music productions, The Merillat Centre for the Arts)
The Best Place . . . to savor a meal (Nick’s Kitchen, The Rusty Dog, The Brick House Grille, The Country Post, Nick’s Cafe, Los Amigos — no shortage of great places to enjoy a quality meal)
The Best Place . . . to raise a family (historic neighborhoods, new neighborhoods, parks, sidewalks, Huntington County Baseball, etc.)
The Best Place . . . to be a good neighbor (United Way, Pathfinder Services, Neighborhood Associations, churches, LOVE Inc.)
The Best Place . . . to get a great cup of coffee (Coffee D’Vine; Johnny’s, Baxter’s, The Party Shop, McDonald’s, etc.)
The Best Place . . . to ride a bike (all around town and all around the county — every September, The Huntington Challenge)
The quality of life that Huntington offers is desirable and attractive. We can always do more to better our best. Let’s move Huntington forward and become known as “The Best Place” in every possible way.
Let’s Move Forward!
