Letters to the Editor
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 • Posted May 25, 2011

Jerry, I am emailing to let you know that I will pick up my campaign picture as soon as I can. Please, don’t get rid of it.Some campaign—it never even got off the ground. Worrying about my job took up most of my time, and then before I knew it, it was May 14th.It doesn’t bother me that I didn’t win or that I only got 6 votes (there’s always another election). The thing that does bother me is that hardly anyone went to vote. Thirty-five votes for an election is ridiculous! No one wants to waste time to vote, but yet, everyone complains. A person can walk down the sidewalk in town, a person can visit anywhere and you will hear complaints about how the city is run or things the city is doing or not doing. Still some people don’t care enough to vote. Thirty-five votes-total!I know some people are thinking that I didn’t care enough to campaign like I should have, and to a point they may be right. I was asked what my campaign promises were (when I started thinking about running for city commissioner)-there are no campaign promises. To my way of thinking, a city commissioner helps to decide what is best for the city and its citizens. An elected commissioner does not come in-high on a horse-ready to change things that are already set. Look at the ethics and values of that person. Then compare and decide who is the best person for the job.We should all vote! It is our responsibility; our right to put in our two-cents worth because, believe me, we are all worth two-cents, if not more.
