For the ones that didn’t win, I hope they stay involved. I was lucky enough to sit in on interviews the candidates had with the editorial board, and I was impressed with many of the candidates’ views.
Those views are still needed on committees.
For the ones that won, their work is just beginning. Time and time again, each candidate expressed a desire for openness in government and an ability to shore up the budget.
We hope they are passionate about those topics when they are sitting in council chambers.
As the new year begins with the new faces on the council, we hope they can work together as a group and with City Administrator Jessica Kinser.
Everyone’s goal should be the same — make Clinton the best city it can be. And that can only be achieved with common goals and a vision.
I haven’t had much room lately in my column, so I’ve skipped out on my duties in selecting weekly games.
I’m back this week, and college football is beginning to heat up.
The Hawks are looking to grab a bowl bid with a win at Purdue and the Cyclones are just looking for a win. Either way, it should be an interesting November for most college football fans.
