City Council Race Today

For the record, Shallow Thoughts endorses Dick Mauss for Mayor, encumbents Lori Darling and Tom Schofield for Council Members-at-Large, and write-in Council candidate Barry Stahl.

Just in case you were wondering.

I don't think now is the time for a shake-up. Quite frankly, the current Council and Mayor were the ones who allowed our town to come inches from bankruptcy. They need to stick around and help put it back together. Sure, they were not the ones who embezzled funds and lost a year's worth of tax income for the town, but they were charged with overseeing the town's employees, and that did not happen. Putting someone new in those seats leaves them no opportunity to repair the damage. Let's keep them in their positions and support them as they sort out the mess we are in.
