Fifty four people signed in at last Fridayâ€™s meeting. A good turnout. We had 5 of the 6 Sheriff candidates on our agendas. The candidates introduced themselves and took questions submitted from the floor. The candidates who participated in our forum were: Dan Breshears, Keith Mack, Terry Duncan, Calvin Smith and John Arthur.
Fred Kimball brought us up to speed on water related issues.
A quick comment on running for public office. Candidates must have courage. They must be willing to put themselves up to public scrutiny. They must have a desire to serve the public. The key word here is serve. Often public service is thankless. Particularly when people cannot see exactly what youâ€™ve been or are doing. The â€œIf I canâ€™t see it, it isn't happening: attitude.
At any rate there are those of us who appreciate your willingness to run for office. I know that only one can win but good luck to all and thank you.
