Have you ever thought about serving your community by running for public office? Specifically, have you ever thought about being on the City Council?

In our community of 140,000 people, seven are elected as our representatives. We put a significant amount of power and trust in the hands of a few people to look out for our interests.

Every other year, voters choose a Mayor (who serves a two-year term) and three Councilmembers (who serve four-year terms). The next City Council election will be April 2, 2013 at which time voters in Districts 1, 3, and 5 will elect representatives and voters citywide will elect a Mayor.

To learn more about city elections, you can visit the City Clerk’s webpage here.

If you are interested in running for City Council or knowing more about it or if you know someone who might be interested, let me know. It is essential to have people on the Council who understand and appreciate the importance of business to the success of the community. April will be here in no time so the time is now to get your questions answered and to begin planning.
