Voters in the southwest part of Belton will see two familiar names when they vote Tuesday for their Ward 3 representative on the City Council.
The incumbent is Albert Hoag, who faces a challenge from former councilwoman Connie S. Hubbard.
Hoag could not be reached for comment, but Hubbard said the council needs to do its best to persuade citizens to pass bond issues to help with the older infrastructure, specifically old sewer and water lines. Two questions on Tuesday’s ballot address those issues.
Hubbard wants the council to curb its own spending.
Ward 3 is also represented by Everett Loughridge. The winner will serve a three-year term.
Connie S. Hubbard
• Age: 60
• Address: 404 Colbern St.
• Occupation: Owns Hubbard Plumbing Company
• Education: Bachelor’s in marketing from Avila University
• Public experience: Held this position in the early 1990s; chair of Belton’s Board of Adjustment; served twice on Belton’s Charter Commission
• Stances: The city needs to bring in more industrial business, specifically to fill two empty industrial parks. She says some council expenses can be cut, and she wants to scale back the number of trips taken to conferences.
