Name: Alan Tscherter. Age: 46. Occupation: Mortgage Loan Officer. Family info: I have been married for 18 years to my wife Kim. We have four boys. Jeff 16, Alex 14, Tyler 11 and Nick 8. I graduated from Reinbeck High School in 1985. I received my bachelors degree from the University of Northern Iowa in the spring of 1990.
I decided to run for City Council because I want to be more involved with the community. As a homeowner, parent and coach I have a vested interest in our city's future.
The need to keep a strong tax base that will allow the city to keep up with the needs of its citizens is important to me. The city needs to retain current families while attracting new residents to our community.
At this time I believe the City of Reinbeck is doing a good job meeting the needs of its citizens.
The city must be able to communicate current issues and or concerns openly with the community. The city must be able to prioritize needs while maintaining a proper budget.
