Like many of his fellow candidates in the Liberal City Commission race, Steve Frazier wants to make the community better, and he believes two places to start are with economic development and communications.
“I think we can do a better job of communicating with the different entities, with the county and do a better job of spending less tax dollars,” he said.
Frazier is one of eight candidates seeking three seats on the city commission, and this is his first time running for a board.
“I just want to serve the citizens of Liberal and try to make Liberal a better place to live,” he said.
Frazier said he would like to see more larger businesses, such as Home Depot, come to Liberal.
“I was really disappointed we didn’t get the IHOP down with the Hampton Inn,” he said. “I’m not sure what’s going on there. I just want to do what we can. Maybe, we need to take a different approach to economic development, look at a few things. Take a look at what the City of Liberal’s doing and the county also as far as economic development and see what we can get in here.”
