The newest member of the Dacula City Council has a fresh outlook on how to make our city a better place to live and is ready to listen to you. Councilman Hubert Wells knows that this position gives him the opportunity to have a great impact on our community.
“I have the ability to stand up and speak out for what I think is right,” councilman Wells said, “and I am always willing to listen to anybody’s opinion regardless of whether it is one I like or not. They might have a good point, and they might change my mind on something.”
Councilman Wells says that the most rewarding part of his new position is being able to help the citizens of Dacula, and he wants to hear what you have to say.
“I like people to call me and voice their opinion,” Wells explained. “Otherwise, how do we know what the people want?”
Communication is obviously key for Wells. He not only wants to hear from citizens, he wants to make sure that people are informed.
“One of the things I would like to accomplish is a computerized sign at city hall,” he said, “that way we can let the people in the city know what is going on.”
Wells cares about the people of Dacula, and he believes everyone is important.
“One of the big things that I want to be able to do is treat our city employees like human beings,” the councilman said. “We have good people that work hard, and they deserve to be paid well.”
Keeping our city clean is another major concern that Wells is determined to tackle with his new seat on city council.
“My vision is to increase capacity of our maintenance department to be able to take care of keeping our city clean,” he said. “We also need to get the whole city on sewer. It is going to take a lot of money and a lot of time. Time we have, but the money is a different situation, especially in these economic times.”
Traffic is another issue that councilman Wells wants to address. While traffic concerns here in Dacula are minimum compared to other parts of the county, there are still certain problem areas.
“I want to decrease the traffic situations that we have here whenever we can,” he said. “The unfortunate problem with traffic in Dacula is that the roads that give us the most problems do not belong to us. We are at the mercy of the state and county on some things.”
Wells has lived in Dacula since 1991 and owns his own plumbing business. His dedication to serve our community is driven by the fact that he lives here, works here and simply enjoys our city and its people.
“I am in the plumbing business, so I get to know a lot of people through my work,” Wells said. “Dacula is a wonderful community, and we have great people here. I just want to do my part to make our city a better place to live.”
