Beasley running for Liberty City Council in May 4 election

Troy Beasley is announcing his candidacy for Liberty City Council.

“I was born in Yettie Kersting Hospital and raised in this wonderful community. Beginning at the age of 15, I volunteered as a junior firefighter in the City of Liberty. In 1994 I became a professional firefighter and later a paramedic for our fine community for seven years,” Beasley said.  

He went on to graduate from college with a degree in nursing at the age of 35 while he was a single father. He still works as a firefighter-paramedic and registered nurse.

“My entire adult life has been in public service, I would like to continue that as your voice for change on the city council,” he said. “Like many of you, I am fed up with the constant water leaks, bad roads, sewer construction, and other infrastructure issues. I’m tired of seeing fuel surcharges higher than all my other bills.”

He is concerned that the city’s leadership is not best serving the needs of the residents.

“What I see is a council that has forgotten about truly serving the public, representing the public’s desires and choosing what’s best for them. I don’t want anymore ‘roads to nowhere’ or having to shower with bottled water,” he said. “We deserve a better city, we deserve a better say in what goes on. With your vote and support, I’ll stand up for what’s right and what you as the community want. Because I believe that together, we can make Liberty great again.”
