Hartmann focuses on development
Hartmann was asked to comment on his major campaign theme.
"I agree with other candidates that the new zoning code will be an important challenge for us as a council, but I have focused on economic development during my campaign," Hartmann said. "We have such a great start with the Technology Park and the ‘dark fiber' ultra high-speed Internet. We need to promote that as much as possible.
"As a council, we should also be doing all we can to retain the businesses we now have," he said. "If elected, I will propose a standing committee for business retention that will meet with our existing businesses on a regular basis to ensure that we are doing all we can for them to allow them to stay in Whitewater as they improve and expand."
