John Timmer is our family choice for re-election to the Highland City Council.
John and his wife Carol are a dedicated couple helping all of the residents of our community. John served in the U.S. Army in 1970 and 1971.
During the formation of the new city of Highland, he was always in a leadership role. Outsiders referred to us as “the city that would fail.” They were wrong!
The people of Highland wanted a new city and a City Council that would fulfill their needs — no apartments, no debt, good long-term planning and the rebuilding of the western portion of Highland. Highland has succeeded with limited revenue, just a lot of help from a lot of people. John supported our vision — a contract city, negotiate with existing public agencies, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and Cal Fire. Trash collection and street cleaning, all submitted out for competitive bids. Get the lowest possible price with no increase in city staffing. The city motto is, “If you don’t have the money, you will not spend!”
Vote for John. He will continue moving Highland forward, making our city a place to be proud of with good schools, a great place to raise our children and a safe community.
