Who am I?
Greetings. I am Nikolai Georgiev. I am eventually going to be 28 years old soon. I ended up with a Masters in Law and Economics. From an early stage of my life, I have been amused by the way how economics work and dedicated my life to helping others. Over the years I have worked as a Law Enforcement Officer, Financial Officer and am currently employed as the County Chief of Staff. What I value the most is transparency, loyalty, dedication, and commitment.I believe that every citizen matters, and that they should be treated fairly. To me, it does not matter if you are an already established entrepreneur or a small time farmer, your concerns matter to me.
Why district 3?
Being a resident of District 3 for a majority of my life, I have grown to see the potential our community has to offer. I know this community like the back of my hand, and I’m willing to do what it takes to represent it fully in our County Government. I believe that it is time for the citizens of District 3 and the County as a whole to start seeing the changes they were promised over and over again. The interests of a concerned citizen matters to me, whether they are representing a established business, or happen to be a local farmer, the community needs representation and that is what I am willing to do. With the utmost transparency, making sure concerns are heard and issues are resolved.
Once elected, I will be focusing on major and minor goals such as:
Unlike our other districts, District 3 is by far the most beautiful district we have, with its vast nature and eye-catching landscape. Over time, it has appeared to me that property maintenance has gotten worse in the area, and pollution as well. Burned out cars turning up, people leaving garbage over their property, arson, and other visually unpleasant sites have been popping up. I look forward to looking with the council and Public Works on doing cleanup and restoration efforts to improve ecological and visual conditions of our district. I will also make it a priority to incentivize property loans, not just for District 3 but for the entire County.
Farmers and Farming:
Farming is a economical and fundamental necessity for any community. I have seen a lack of interest and effort for farming in District 3, and from personal experience, the people I have seen or met who are interested in farming, can’t get their foot in the door in the business. Lack of financial assistance seems to be a strong deterrent for aspiring farmers, with farms being overpriced on the market, just to be used as car storage or a cottage, that perfectly crop land goes to waste. Once elected, I will make it a priority to work with our council to improve economic assistance for people attempting to pursue a farming career, whether it be through loans, or legislation.
Clean energy solutions:
District 3 is one of the very natural regions in our county, surrounded by nature and wild life. I believe clean and renewable energy is a requirement to protect the environment and our fuzzy friends. Solar, thermal and hydro power are project ideas that I would like to pursue for our District, to effectively lessen our carbon foot print.
Fighting the crime:
District 3 has been relatively one of the safest districts in our county, and we need to keep it that way. Community safety is number one priority, we need to ensure our people are protected against violence, fraud and thievery. Stepping up police patrols, amending the fortifications act or keep the public informed, whatever it takes to make our district safe, I am willing to put to practice.
I do not tolerate corruption. I am joining the fight against corruption, I will support our Commissioner and the rest of the council in anti-corruption efforts. I will not tolerate corruption in any way or form.
