TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - For the first time in over a decade, three seats are open on the commission, including mayor's seat.
Hopeful candidates will have a chance to put their ideas into action if elected to the Tallahassee City Commission in 2018.
Bill Schack, the food service director for the Kearney Center, was the first to step forward last April. Schack says he joined the race for commissioner early because he wanted to build trust and a relationship with voters before the election.
Schack spends his life as a community volunteer, leader, and is a 2017 finalist for the Glenn J. Winuk Humanitarian Service Award. At the Kearney Center, he feeds over 400 local individuals daily.
Schack feels Tallahassee needs new leadership and wants to see changes made to benefit everyone in the Capital City.
"I believe that the City of Tallahassee needs to find leaders that are willing to tackle those tough issues. It's not about community meetings anymore and talking about it," Schack said. "We need action."
Schack stresses that the citizens of Tallahassee deserve action on issues and they deserve integrity in city hall. He adds, as a Tallahassee resident, he wants to see elected leaders who are going to make an impact in the community.
As a long-time local and involved volunteer, Schack is hoping to become a new voice on the committee to tackle the tough issues that exist in Tallahassee.
