what kind of people are we looking for to run the city? my thoughts are people who don't have any other interest but to be a public servant, someone who will actually listen to the people who have complaints and will represent them in that particular matter. we need people who have working skills, not just paperwork and meaning less conversation about the way things should be ran.PROBLEM SOLVERS---hard workers ,good morals, someone who isn't afraid to go against the established norm that has been raceland..something to think about before you vote...or we'll have the same old good ole boys club like the ones we've had for 30 years or so.

And That Is Another Reason I Am Voting For Dana Williamson. Not Only Does He Have The Political Know-How...He Just Gets Things Done...Not To Mention Hes Not In It For The Pay He Donates All Of That To Charity. So Please If You Want This City To Get Better...Not Saying It Will Happen Overnight...But If You Love This City And Want It To Get Better Please Vote For Dana Williamson.

According to the County Clerk's web site, there are 13 people running for the 6 available Council positions. The time for change is now. If you, as a citizen and a voter, do not like the way the city has been represented, then please come out and vote. Make your voice heard.

I also here this guy is aligned with the female Sarg. this is not good time for her to go this year. She is 69 or 70 yrs old and is a liability to the city . Clean out the city building and start all over. Start inforceing the city ordinances ceal up Raceland.

There isn't one single person there that does a good job! Who do you think does such a good job? The only job the current council and mayor do is screw the citizen's of Raceland over? Everyone on the council and the mayor needs to go. Hopefully people will vote in all new members, don't leave any of the present members on that council. This is the only way to really insure that Raceland will get on the road to recovery.

Because he was on his own and the rest of the idiots that were on the council voted against him on everything. That is why he left the council.

what are some of the things that the council could do for the community?be specific, let's start by leaving the past where it is,in the past. what are some things that a council member should focus on in the short future, or UNDO immediately? and who do you think thats running will approach these things(against the esablishment) without any regaurd or scrutiny.. basically will tell the established to kiss there butt, its time for change and progress in this stagnated community..we need to grow and profit!!!!

First the financial abuse of the city money needs to stop....i.e., workers that are not working need to be replaced. The city needs to get that situation corrected before anything else. Water lines are horrible, if the water isn't off it is filthy and undrinkable. Raceland has been in turmoil for as long as I can remember and the only thing that will fix the problem is to have all new people with the only agenda, make Raceland a better community where people are happy to live, work, visit.

Raceland would probably build up if the city would work with businesses. But they seem to want to sit back and watch other cities grow while we disappear in the wind. shhot I would even vote to merge cities with Flatwoods or Russell.
