“My record of accomplishments shows that I have an investment in this town,” Zenchuk said.
Zenchuk ran for a council position in the last election, but was defeated. He said he will do everything it takes to win this time around.
“My job would be to make the city an attractive place for businesses,” Zenchuk said. “The function of the City Council is to put the city in the best position for those businesses to relocate.”
As a full-time city resident since 2004, Zenchuk would like to maintain the small-town feeling Holly Springs currently enjoys, while trying to build the community.
“Look at Woodstock, downtown Canton, they both have thriving downtown spaces,” Zenchuk said.
He added that though the economic environment makes it difficult to develop and find financing, he looks forward to seeing his city grow.
“I think once we start to turn the corner, the city can partner with private capital ventures and turn the downtown area into a thriving, revenue-driving source for city,” he said. “Holly Springs has a very rich history of over a hundred years as a municipal government. We don’t want to be a between spot. We need to be our own spot on the map and the downtown area will help us get there.”
A family man, Zenchuk would also like to see more parks and greenspace in the city for other families to enjoy and to draw more interest to the area.
In regard to Holly Springs’ lack of a fire department, Zenchuk has changed his position since last year about moving forward with creating one.
“Last year, I would have said yes, but we are not in the position for it now,” Zenchuk said. “As we grow, we should have our own fire rescue. Right now, we don’t have the revenue to do that.”
In his spare time, the father of three is an assistant coach for the Sequoyah Junior Chiefs baseball team as well as a coach for East Cherokee Baseball. He has also served as a tee-ball and soccer coach for Cherokee Outdoor Family YMCA.
