It is time to take a moment and look at the recent county council election and ask if there is a statement in the vote. We think there is.
First, however, we would like to take a moment to give our congratulations to both the voters and the candidates.
We had such a great voter turnout and that is always a good thing to see in a democracy. Secondly, those voters had a choice of some very good people and that fact should not be overlooked.
Running for office is a hard thing, it takes a lot of time, sacrifice and dedication. Those people who ran should all receive our thanks – winners or not.
So to Manny Baca, Ken Milder, Sharon Stover, Mike Wismer and Vincent Chiravalle we extend the thanks of the community for a job well done.
Now, for the discussion.
When three of the five candidates question the way the county is going, how it is being run and how it is spending its money – and those three win – then it seems to us the message is loud and clear.
People are not happy with the way the county is spending money, not happy with all the projects being put forth and have a feeling of simply being ignored.
We are fortunate to have such an honest and dedicated group on council and in the county staff. Still, things are not being handled well and there are too many questions.
