      I couldn’t vote for you honestly. Your comments about the ” Calls for Service and Arrest Data Summary ” show you can’t comprehend it. Paperwork will get a lot harder once elected.

      • Karl dietzel says:

            Thanks Eric
            We have to be aware that this November election is about
            Us, we the people, we have the chance to elect a new major,
            And 2 new council members.!

            My message is simple:
            Don’t vote for the same people over and over,
            And expect different results.
