Give some serious thought to our 2013 election and no it’s not to early to start thinking about it. From everything I’ve heard there might be two open seats on the council and the Mayors term is up. This election has the potential to change the city and who run’s it.
There’s a lot at stake for the city going forward and it’s residents who do we want to see in charge of this city? Who will best represent us on the council? The old ways of dealing with things are just not good enough for the future of the city. The city just doesn’t need more of the same that’s not just for this Mayor,but for anyone thinking of running against him.
Instead of having the establishment hand-pick the candidates they think are good enough for us let us do the picking. Let’s not discount the younger generation just because of their age if they are willing to put in the time and effort if they have the residents best interest at heart we should foster that. Again if they put more effort then just putting their name on the ballot even though a lot can be said in just a name lets not base a vote on it.
Have some serious discussions about this with your club members, neighbors, family, and friends. Most of all ask yourself and others what you want what issues are important to you. How do you want the council to work for you, what kind of Mayor do you want to see leading this city. Take it upon your selves to inform people about what has been going on in this city for the past three years. Ask your self and others where they want to see their city in the next 5 and 10 years.
