My name is Bill Furey and I would like to thank the residents for giving me the opportunity to serve a fourth term for Twinsburg on City Council. As an at Large representative, I have a chance to work with the other five Ward Councilmen on issues affecting the city and in sharing ideas to improve our community.
I will continue to work with Council and the Mayor on ways to save money for our residents. Recently many of you participated in the natural gas program which has saved the residents of the City over three million dollars in heating costs since being implemented. I consider it a privilege to serve on Council and please feel free to contact me with any questions in the future.
