A familiar face is the newest Alderman in Pleasant View. On Tuesday, January 12, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen met to fill the seat vacated by Bill Anderson after Anderson won the Mayor’s race in the November election.
Danny Rediker and Ronnie Curtis were both put up for nomination, with Rediker winning the majority of votes. Vice Mayor Bruce Drake, Alderman Kyle Pritchett, and Mayor Anderson voted for Rediker, while Alderman Jill Niccolich voted for Curtis. Rediker will be sworn in February 9 and will finish out Anderson’s Alderman term which expires November 2022.
Rediker, who had previously served as Alderman for four years and Vice Mayor for three years, said he was honored the Board nominated him to the position this year.
“I am happy to continue to serve as alderman again for the Town of Pleasant View,” he said.
When asked by The Post how he planned to use his position to guide Pleasant View through its tremendous growth while remaining fiscally responsible, Rediker said in an email, “It is important we work together as a Board to start growing the general fund to be fiscally sound in the years to come while gaining control of the infrastructure.”
When asked what his goals were for Pleasant View's future, he said, “First, we can work together as a Board to catch our infrastructure up to the growth that arrived before it was ready. Together, we can develop a plan for our infrastructure that can handle smart growth.”
