Editor’s Note: The Santa Rosa Press Gazette will feature Milton City Council candidates running in the Nov. 8 election. We continue this multi-part series with an introduction to Jeff Snow, who is running for seat1 in Ward III against Henry G. Martin.
Tell us a little about yourself.
"I am married to Paula Snow and we have five children. I have lived in Milton, Fla. for the last 20-plus years. I am currently employed with L-3 Communications at NAS Whiting Field for the last 31 years on the TH-57 helicopter flight-training program. I have held numerous positions while employed there.
“I have been a coach/mentor to children all of my adult life through inline speed skating, basketball and softball programs. Our family are members of Pace Assembly of God, where I hold a leadership role in our church's age ministry group."
Why are you running for Milton City Council?
"My decision to run for Milton City Council came with a lot of thought and prayer. I thought of the future that our city's children and my own will face — and I believe we can do a lot better. I want to give them a better Milton and better opportunities. I believe it's time to move Milton into the future."
What would you like to accomplish in Milton?
"I would start with working with others by giving our citizens a voice and have a receptive ear to their needs and concerns. I will focus on making our city business friendly with a 'How can we make things work' mentality, which will attract new businesses and employment opportunities for our citizens.
“I will also focus heavily on our parks/recreation and children’s programs to offer more opportunities for our children. I will strive to make our city and city council one that the citizens will be proud of. Let's Move Milton Forward!”
