Susan Berk Runs For Seat On Upland City Council

Susan Berk For Upland City Council
PRLog - Aug. 21, 2014 - UPLAND, Calif. -- Susan Berk announced this week that she is running for Upland City Council.  Ms. Berk, a 30-year Upland resident, corporate program manager, and widely-published business and management author, is seeking a seat on the Upland City Council to bring more professional management to the troubled Upland city government.

“I’ve been appalled at what’s been happening in Upland for the last several years,” Berk said.   “Our city government’s reputation is terrible and the current council has failed to provide adequate oversight.   We’ve had bribery, indictments, convictions, our mayor went to prison, and the city government has to be forced to share information with the people they serve.  Our costs are out of control.  I am alarmed by the efforts to outsource our water and sewer management, and to impose new taxes on our citizens. This latest outsourcing scheme is a shortsighted ploy to increase revenues by imposing significantly higher fees on the people who live here.   These price hikes are not being driven by our water and sewer costs.  It’s just a ploy to grab more money to address city government failures in other areas.  We don't need new taxes or end runs around the requirement to secure approval on utility fee hikes.   We need to get our costs under control.  It’s time for a change, and that’s why I’m running.”

Berk holds a senior management position with Raytheon where she is responsible for open road tolling systems design, installation, and commissioning.   She has undergraduate and graduate degrees from California State Polytechnic University (BS, Mathematics, and an MBA).    More information is available at www.SusanBerk.com.
