Cheverly continues to be a great place to live and work and my wife Kim and I have made it our home for the past three years. Cheverly has remained strong because of hard work and a sense of community – the very qualities that let us to buy a home here. Together we’ve built a stable tax base, kept our home values up, and created a unique community for children as well as adults. I am proud to be a member of the Council and it is a privilege to serve our community.
Despite our many successes, much remains to be done. The revitalization of Tuxedo Road is critical to the future of our Town and is especially important to Ward Two. I’m a member of the Metro Development Task Force, which is working to put in writing Cheverly’s vision for the future of our Metro station. I’ve restarted the effort to get Cheverly our own zip code, to lower our insurance rates and help maintain Cheverly’s unique identity. I supported Cheverly’s sale of the Route 450 properties to the County, and am proud that the development we wanted for that property is finally coming to fruition. I will continue to champion the efforts of Cheverly’s citizens to build an off-leash dog park because I believe the benefits to all of Cheverly’s citizens will outweigh logistical and financial concerns.
I want to continue representing Ward Two because I believe Cheverly can be an even stronger community and an even better place to put down roots, and I want to help make that happen. Part of
Cheverly’s strength comes from a responsive Town Council that listens to citizens’ needs and represents
their interests to the people who can make a difference, and I’m doing just that. If you want to see a stronger and more prosperous Cheverly in the future, then I ask you to vote for me, Micah Watson, on May 2.
