Eye-opening race for first-time candidate

To the editor:

Thank you to everyone who participated as a candidate, voter, letter-writer, and public question-asker in this year’s city council election. It was eye-opening for this first-time candidate the time and effort it all takes and everyone has my respect for that alone.

The seven who won have big decisions in front of them, not just with the now-infamous REC revenue and needing to seek out a new city manager, but also – and perhaps most of all – how to make sure to the best of their abilities that residents understand the nature of the issues they face.

Thanks again to everyone for their words of support.
