“I’ll wait; I’ll wait until the last minute,” Kramer said. “I’ll hold out.”
The three council seats are not the only ones on the chopping block this year. The position of mayor is also up for election this November and current Mayor Ken Fahlbeck will not be the only candidate vying for the position.
Councilman Trevor Willis will take a stab at becoming mayor of Camanche, a decision he has been pondering for a couple of months.
“I just think the city needs stronger leadership; that’s one of the main reasons,” Willis said. “My thing is just be as honest as I can with the people and try to affect change, try to affect the policies adopted in this city by working closely with the city council.”
His biggest competitor, Fahlbeck, has decided he will run for a second term because he feels there are still a few things he has left to do for the city of Camanche.
“I’ve got some things that I haven’t accomplished yet that I’d like to get accomplished,” Fahlbeck said. “I’ve got a sound mind with the budget. I want to keep our departments clean with their budgets to where I don’t want to have to raise taxes. That’s one of my main issues.”
Fahlbeck also said he has one other issue that he would like to see handled before his time as mayor comes to an end, but plans on using that as his platform for the upcoming election.
