With the Council soon to interview 15 candidates for its open position, this is an opportunity to bring ‘new blood’ to the Council. In taking time to find information about the 13 candidates who have not served before, I see some good citizens to consider. Some already serve on City committees. Others hold important positions in the community. Most have good lengths of time in their profession, and skills that would complement the Council. The Council needs to refresh itself at times like these. I hope the Council will be patient with its process, and take the time to find the best person to serve the community.
