Name: Rick Noel
City of Residence: Columbiana
Party Affiliation: Running as an independent, registered republican
Office Desired: City council member
Why should you be elected
I am retired with time to commit to the position, a long history of community experience and a strong desire to see Columbiana grow as the greatest place to all my hometown.
Top three priorities
1) The establishment of a second industrial park to attract new commercial and industrial business and provide space for existing business expansion.
2) To establish a year long series of community events that will attract regional interest in commercial and entertainment business in the downtown and Town Center.
3) Expand existing manufacturing growth and job creation by increasing participation in the city’s tax incentive programs.
