Thanks for stepping forward

We commend the men and women who have filed nomination petitions for election to positions as mayors and city council members.

This represents a dedication to public service and a willingness to make difficult decisions that not everyone shares. With the exception of one council seat in Larrabee, all positions will have at least one candidate on the ballot.

There will be contested seats in Aurelia, Cherokee, Marcus and Washta for the Nov. 3 election.

Win or lose, the candidates all have our appreciation.
