Thumbs up: Some political candidates go the extra mile

Editorial board

It is refreshing to see that some candidates for public office and already elected local residents take their time to attend forums. The unopposed candidates do not have to attend — they will win regardless — but taking their time to talk to residents is a plus.

Ward 1 Alderman Denny Gould did just that at the Tea Party Patriots Candidate Forum recently.

Additionally, other elected officials and others in positions of authority attended, showing their interest and care for the community.
