Sure glad that I don't have to make a choice about which candidate to vote for in District 4. Both Mary Rakestraw and Joel Landau are personal friends of mine and I think the City Council could use both.
Mike Barber did a commendable job when he served as District 4 Representative. Although I am not in favor of opening the city dump to household trash, Mike's insistence that we could save money by re-opening that part of the dump started a conversation that I think should have been done before the decision to haul household trash out of our county.
Maybe something smart will be done by the new council (if we get some changes to the current reps). Some of the incumbents have been really unrealistic about the dump issue. And many people who support them don't fully understand the issues concerning our landfill operations.
