Mayor Rusch says good When Thompson decided against another term, he called Rusch and told him he had to run. Then he called all of his friends and asked them to talk to Rusch too.”It’s because of him that I’m sitting here today,” Rusch said.At their urging, Rusch ran in 2010 and again in 2012.Rusch was proud to be able to say he continued Thompson’s legacy of focusing on streets, sidewalk, water and sewer.”Ed had it right.Cialis Australia Paypal You’ve got to invest in your infrastructure,” Rusch said.Rusch is most proud of helping to bring the city administrator position to Tomah.When he first became mayor,Cialis Australia Price there was no city administrator position and Tomah mayor was a full time job.”I ended up spending 50 to 60 hours a week down here, because, you know, you were actually in charge of everything,” Rusch said.With the Tomah City Council’s blessing, Rusch formed a committee to investigate the position.”That was probably the best thing we ever did,” Rusch said.Rusch learned a lot about the city while serving as mayor.”There are a lot of things you’d like to do, but the funds just aren’t there,” Rusch said.For example,http://www.pharmacyface.com the recreation center that topped the Imagine Tomah survey last year will be expensive to bring to Tomah.”It’s not going to be an easy thing to do,” Rusch said.Rusch was surprised to learn reasons new businesses came to Tomah.
