Be Sure to Vote Next Week!

Recommended Posts

I know everyone here loves our fair city, and we continue to face many important challenges. There are lots of contested races for City Council, Mayor and the Board of Education. So please be sure to get out and make your voice heard next Tuesday, November 8!!! It's our future to decide.

There's some good info at the Chamber of Commerce website.

Heh heh, I think it's obvious who will be mayor :P

As for city council, many of them already seem to be done deals (so to speak), but I have seen a few ones that will be interesting to watch. An especially interesting thing to see will be how well the socialist candidates fare (I have heard rumors of some running). :P

^ Right, I believe my councilperson is running uncontested. But council district 3 will be a huge race - between Ivory Young & Michael Bond.

Yes, but 9 out of 15 City Council seats are contested.

A whole bunch of School Board seats are up, too -- with a $500+ million budget, over 50,000 students and 11,000 employees, these are also pretty important races. I personally think that having a superior school system is critical to the City's long-term viability.

Distrect 2 should be a pretty good race as well. Kwanza Hall and Al Caproni are running for the seat being vacated by Debi Starnes. I honestly don't yet know which way I will vote.
