Jaden Ingle is a political newcomer taking on incumbents Shelly Betz and Ray Little for a four-year position on the Morgan City Council.
“I fully believe that it's time we have new ideas and new minds in our city government to help revive Morgan, and help it to grow to what it's fully capable of becoming,” said Ingle, 19. “I'm running for this position to try and help Morgan to grow, and to solve some issues the city is currently facing.”
Ingle would like to eliminate needless spending and keep utility costs at a reasonable range, which would in turn benefit business in the city “so that they can last for more than a year.”
Ingle would also like to keep the younger generation in mind. He encourages more activities and resources for children and teens “to try to keep them in Morgan, and happy about being there.
“I plan to make Morgan a more friendly and open environment for the children, because even if it's said a thousand times, it's the truth that they are our future,” said Ingle.
The city’s best recent accomplishment is the installation of the splash pad at Riverside Park, he said. “While it is a great idea, it does have its drawbacks, and should be reviewed on how to improve it for both the families who use it, and for those who do not.”
Ingle’s work experience includes three years at The Outpost Armoury, and two years at Spencer’s Glass and Paint, in both retail/public relations and manufacturing.
