Letter: There’s excitement in the air for new council
All roads lead to City Hall. After a long, arduous and competitive election season, the people have spoken and the votes have been counted. I commend all the candidates who threw their hats into the ring to become a public servant for the city of Salisbury. Likewise, I congratulate Al Heggins, David Post, Karen Alexander, Tamara Sheffield and Brian Miller for their wins.
All roads lead to City Hall. While attending numerous forums during the campaign period, I listened intently to each candidate’s response to the questions raised. The answers they offered presented an opportunity for me to identify unique skill sets for the various candidates. Each skill set combined with that of another colleague could prove to be extremely beneficial for the city. Whether it is Al’s ability to make sure every voice is heard, David’s tremendous knowledge of Fibrant, Tamara’s familiarity with overseeing a gigantic budget, or Karen and Brian’s experience from serving on Council — put this all together and it sounds like a win/win combination.
All roads lead to City Hall. As the city prepares for the swearing in ceremony there is an excitement in the air. A few days from now the incoming council members may vote in the city’s first black woman mayor. A few days from now the incoming council members may vote in the city’s first Jewish mayor pro-tem. If council members follow the tradition which has existed for decades, they will be instrumental in writing a new chapter for the history books of Salisbury.
All roads lead to City Hall. I hope to witness history on Dec. 5. Al Heggins received the most votes. Al Heggins is committed to working on behalf of all our diverse communities. Al Heggins is ready to be Salisbury’s mayor!
