Mayor Jeff Worrell will celebrate his 54th birthday by announcing his candidacy for another term as Mayor of the Town of Pulaski.

According to Worrell, serving the citizens of the Town of Pulaski as Mayor has been a great honor and privilege, and he would like to continue this work. He stated that the town has been through a lot during his term.

Since he’s been Mayor, the Town of Pulaski has endured a blizzard, a flood, a tornado, and a derecho.

“We’ve not only recovered from these natural disasters, we’ve prospered along the

way,” said Worrell.

In a news release sent out by Worrell, he noted the various accomplishments Pulaski has achieved over the past few years, despite the hardships the town has endured.

“The Raymond F. Ratcliffe Transportation Museum is at long last a reality, and turned out better than we dreamed,” Worrell said. “Falls Stamping and Welding has purchased the former Renfro Building, MTM has expanded at the Maple Shade, and Bluebird Resin’s has expanded to the former Jefferson Yarns Hill Plant.”

He also noted that West Main Street LLC has purchased historic buildings downtown for mixed use. According to Worrell, there are other Main Street investments in the works, James Hardie continues to grow and expand.

He also said the town is making significant investments in critical infrastructure with upgrades to the water plant and raw water pump station. They’ve also been successful in attracting grant funds for other projects.

    Please tell me that someone will run against Mr. Worrell. But I am sure that nobody else wants the job. Strong leadership would help about right now. I don’t see any leadership with status quo. Pulaski can do much better than Mr. Worrell. Someone step up to the pump and bring the Town of Pulaski out of the poverty hole they are in at this time. Downtown is nothing for the most part, a but a bunch of dirty nasty junk shops. This is in my opine: not hardships the town has endured, but is still enduring. Small business in a nice clean environment will help bring people back to downtown. Buildings in disrepair or even all but falling down is not a way to do this. Leadership the is the only way to make the town what it once was and can be again. The money issue I know will be the reason for non action. A strong leader would have a plan to bring people with money to invest and start the rebirth of downtown Pulaski. I would bet the farm Mr. Worrell has no clue how to even start this. There has to be someone out there that can get the job done.

    Okay he tells us about all of the good things that have happened since he has been the Mayor of Pulaski but there is also a lot of bad.Pulaski is going nowhere.Also I would like to know how MR Worrell feels about the combining of the Pulaski and Dublin Middle Schools at 50 million dollars and the 29 percent raise on property taxes to pay for it.A 29 percent increase or even a 10 percent increase would put the final nails in the coffin on our already ghost town.Does anybody know who is running against him ?? Somebody told me but I forgot.
