Why did I run for the City Council?????????

I had to ask myself why am I running for City Council? I have only gone to four Council Meetings. I didn't like the way the current council acted when someone had the floor. The council members ignored a lot of what was said by the person speaking. I thought texting to other council members showed how interested some of the council members were in what was being said.

How to handle the Seperation of Duties from the remedies offered in the 2014 State Audit & the 2016 State Audit.

This is a big question for the next Council & Mayor! This type of oversight issues determines the credibility of the City as a whole!!!!!
