A local business owner and entrepreneur thinks he has what it takes to lead the Town of Paradise.
Darryl L. Power, a 33 year old Paradise resident, recently filed to run for the position of Mayor.
Power, born and raised in St. John's, has lived in Paradise for the past 4 years with his common-law wife. With 15 years of experience in the military, most of which was as a Captain, and an education from Memorial University, where he studied History, Political Science and Business, he brings a fresh face and an abundance of leadership and integrity to the table.
"Our town hasn't had any real direction or plan for some time now", stated Darryl. "We still have residents who are not on municipal water or sewer and our main roads, St. Thomas Line, Paradise Rd and parts of Topsail Rd, as well as many residential roads are still not up to par compared to the newer areas of Paradise."
Power also sees the need to address the big issue pertaining to the traffic congestion and has a plan that he believes can not only solve the traffic issues, but will also attract more amenities and conveniences to the town. He wants to build a town where people living in Paradise can also Work, Shop, Relax and Play all within the community.
Darryl goes on to state, "I have discussed my ideas with neighbors and others in our town and I have gotten a very positive response, but I want more of the public's input on my ideas. I am open to criticism and I expect it, but at the end of the day I want to build a town the next generation can be proud to live in."
Power plans to release his ideas on his website (www.darrylpower.com) as well as on his Facebook Fanpage over the coming weeks.
