Keep in mind anyone who is a good candidate has to live within the city limits and have a decent amount of management savvy. Can you name a viable potential candidate ?

DEEZ NUTS would make a good choice in my opinion if you are asking who would make a good mayor..

Tough decisions abound. Pretty sure we don't need to continue the current regime. However, a truly viable candidate needs to be identified, convinced to run, and supported. Just sayin...

I have given a lot of thought in this and I think Maureen Harrod would be an excellent choice. She has served as city attorney and then on city council and has always made decisions based on the best interest of the city. She's a very intelligent strong minded women. If you think she would make a great mayor let her know lets see if we can talk her into putting her name on the ballot. Maureen Harrod for Mayor !!!!!!!

Wouldn't be my personal first choice. However, the writer's statements about Maureen's character and work ethic are not wrong. She would not have done the things as mayor that posters here complain about our current mayor doing.

I'm open for suggestions Mork who would be your first choice ? We may agree maybe your thinking of someone I haven't thought of I had thought of a couple more but have talked to them and they have stated they are not interested. I have not spoke with Maureen so I have no clue if she would even concider the position but I honestly believe she would be a great choice.

Sadly, my first two choices both told me today they would not consider running. Unless I can think of someone else that would be a truly viable candidate I would agree with Maureen as a viable candidate.
Are you serious

Have any of you actually talked to Maureen and tried to get something prosecuted? I couldn't decide of she was lazy or just plain stupid. Some of the crap people get told with regard to what can and can't be prosecuted??!! Perhaps it's just "good ole boy" syndrome all the way down from the top??? I say we move the city limits just a little further out and get David Smith to run...

I'm for David Smith as well I think he would be an excellent mayor for our city. But as you mentioned he lives just outside our city limits I don't see the city changing that especially since he and Jackie dislike each other as much as they do Jackie would never extend the city limits knowing that David would beat him out of his position. Plus David was one of the two that I had talked too who stated he wasn't interested but that was also before his wife passed and David had a lot on his plate at the time. I'm all for David renting him an apt in town and running for mayor but if he won't Maureen is my next choice unless someone comes up with someone that I haven't thought of and feel that our city could benefit from them as our mayor.

A negative aspect of running for mayor for many people is that it is a temporary job. Many middle aged people are not comfortable leaving their business or job to take on a position they will most likely have for only 4-8 years. Many older folks just don't want the hassle, drama and stress that comes with the position. Finding a willing and truly viable candidate is a challenge at best.

Let's not do what the national republicans have done to the presidential race. Lol. We have just under two years to find a truly good candidate. Let's not waste time doing so.

Sounds like we are doomed!! This little city is dying on the vine and it just keeps getting worse.

I don't have a clue who could turn it around at this point.

Doom and gloom are the certain outcome of failing to identify a capable and willing candidate. They are also the outcome of wringing one's hands and predicting doom instead of thinking long and hard while actively pursuing the task.

Funny that she didn't remove my post about making the judge and the city move. Lol. I guess she can't percieve sarcasm or someone being facetious. Negative comments are just a fact of political life. Maybe she isn't tough enough to be a mayoral candidate.

I see the comments made about her being rude and snobbish were removed but the ones about how she controls her husband are still here. I guess she wants everyone to know how she rules the roost.
