I had the opportunity to attend the 2022 Town Council Candidate Forum and want to share a few observations.

I have always believed in listening to others and striving to honestly reach common ground. A fair and reasonable approach to finding solutions to issues regardless of political affiliation. I came to the forum to hear how each of the candidates would address current, future and pending issues with solutions based on facts, not vagueness. Approaches to resolving issues regardless of how challenging, not to hear insults and personal attacks that simply overshadowed any positive input that a candidate may have offered.
