David Nealley for City Council | For A Better Bangor
HomeAbout the CandidateHow You Can Help

.... they both love Bangor! 


I am running for Bangor City Council because I would like to ensure that Bangor residents and taxpayers benefit from our City's growth.

Many good things are happening in Bangor.

Downtown is experiencing a sense of vibrancy and the Bangor Waterfront is the talk of Maine. Plus, we have a new civic center! 

So far we have weathered a tough economy and actually experienced some growth, and we need to work on how this growth best benefits Bangor residents and taxpayers.  

Now that we have the momentum, it is time to get back to the basics.

We must benefit from this growth, by improving the quality of our residential life with investments in our sidewalks and streets and other essential municipal services, while working to reduce the property tax burden for our citizens. I will work towards these goals.

It is with great passion for Bangor and its people that I seek to earn your vote for Bangor City Council. Thank you for your consideration of my candidacy.

Respectfully submitted,

David S. Nealley
