Being a Medford, businessman owner of Ranco Enterprises Inc./Amanda's Oil for the past 30 years, I have been constantly watching a city administration and city council abdicate their responsibility to address citizen and city responsibility matters timely. If I ran my business and household as the city has been doing for the past many years, I would not be in business today.
As such and not having made my decision lightly and wanting our city to move forward with the times, I knew that I didn’t want to be all talk and no action. So I decided to be a new Medford ball player stepping up to the plate that aspires to make game winning decisions for our city. I absolutely respect the fact that we need taxes to make our city run adequately but, continuing to be taxed with increases each year while questioning our city’s, staple services, being at issue, is quite disconcerting.
