Another candidate's come forward, seeking a seat on Portage City Council.

Jeff Bereza's name will be on the ballot October 25th.

It's the first time he's run for office, and thinks it's time to give back to the community. Bereza is co-chair of the Portage Recreation Committee, investigating a new rec complex, so the issue is important to him.

He notes some facilities need to be improved, and credits Council with moving in the right direction by constructing the walking path along Crescent Lake.
Besides recreation, Bereza thinks attracting new business, crime, and infrastructure are the main issues on voters' minds heading into the election.

He believes his contribution to Council would be  new ideas, as well as the ability to work in a team environment.
