Blue Republican Minnesota is Proud to Endorse Casey Peak for Re-election to Crystal City Council
Walking the Talk
Most people have strong philosophical or political views. It is a rare person that is willing to dig in and do the work to test those views out. It is a rare person that is willing to take “citizenship” seriously and freely give time and effort to make the best of his own community. Casey Peak is that rare person. In Casey’s own words, “Never expect others to do what I cannot. Always step up to the plate. Be forward thinking and concise. Be innovative. And above all, do it all with honor. Honor is a seldom used and understood term in our time, but it is one of my core principles. I believe that by respecting others and honoring them I can bring honor and purpose to my everyday life. This is why I ran for council”
Casey has been a successful Crystal city councilman Ward 3 since 2012. The Star Tribune in a national article states: “Peak was elected in 2012 and recruited other Libertarians and like-minded people to run for the council two years later, leading to the current five-member majority.”
The Star Tribune further asserts: “In addition to paying cash for civic improvements, Crystal has undertaken a cleanup of the municipal code to get rid of ordinances considered outdated, unenforceable or just plain silly. “The newspaper cites this example: “Finally, the pool table at the community center is going to be legal,” said Mayor Jim Adams, who is not a party member but considers himself “liberty-minded. Because you can’t have a pool table within so many feet of a city building.” Casey asserts that “The reality is we just think differently because we come at it with a different core mentality.”Casey emphasizes eliminating city debt, improving transparency and strengthening community.
He says he is non-partisan and seeks to build personal connections. Casey understands the importance of including everyone. He says: “I believe everyone has something to offer.” He backs up this commitment with his work strengthening the Community Outreach group to build awareness and increase the number of activities Crystal has to offer by gathering information and volunteers that help everyday people get directly involved with their community. Casey is a great example of Blue Republican Values
