What’s up, y’all. I’m Nathan, but you can call me Nate. I’m running for a spot on the Bowling Green City Commission, and for good reason, let’s talk about what kind of Bowling Green we can be in the future…

In this campaign, I’ll be focusing on 5 things that Bowling Green can, and should tackle. Let’s dig in.

1. We should expand the size of our City Commission.

Four commissioners and a mayor run this city. Bowling Green is the 3rd largest city in Kentucky, and one of its fastest growing. We sure as hell deserve to have a bigger city commission, if you’re asking me. More voices, especially more diverse ones, will only benefit us moving forward as a city. Let’s do it together.

2. We should start to plan for moving the airport.

When the airport was built, no one was planning for the city that Bowling Green would become. Today, while things are still technically fine, we can see that the future will bring us a few major issues with the airport remaining on Scottsville Road. Instead of being reactionary, like most lame governments are, we can be proactive here, and fix the problem before it even arises.

3. We should begin the process of consolidating the city and county governments.

Fusion is great. Just look at the evidence: peanut butter and jelly, bourbon and ice, Goku and Vegeta. Need I continue? Well…if I must. We can build a much more effective government, by reducing the redundancy and overlap that currently exists with the way our city and county governments are set up.

Like small government? Great! This technically will reduce the overall size of our governing body!

Like big government? Great! This makes the city government a little bigger, just in the right places!

4. We should build actual bus stops.

Our bus stops are simply signs in the ground. We can do wayyyyyyyyy better than this as a city if you ask me. The people who use our transit system deserve to be able to have a seat in the shade, or be able to be out of the rain, while still using our system.

5. We should build and properly run a homeless shelter.

We really, really, really should do this. Bowling Green is flourishing, but that isn’t the case for everyone. We need to not just be cognizant of it, but we also need to create safety nets for the people who need them the most. Building and running a proper homeless shelter is just one of the many ways that we can begin to helpĀ all of our citizens even better.

That’s all for now, but this site will continue to grow and I’ll make sure to add more curse words just to shake things up a bit.

4. We should build a better system for recycling in this city.

The recycling system in Bowling Green is a joke, and it’s a bad one. We need to invest in ways to help our citizens recycle (and also reduce and reuse, of course). We want the cleanest, most beautiful Bowling Green possible, and this is one way to do it.

5. We should build and properly run a homeless shelter.
