The following was received by a Guardian reader who wishes to remain anonymous, (THE GUARDIAN does not endorse candidates but does provide a forum for discussion).
"I believe it is time to open the windows in the Caldwell City Council Chambers and let some fresh air in.
Over the past few elections we have had an interesting list of candidates show up for various reasons. This year we have two incumbents and one open seat with at least two people running for each seat. The good news this year is that we have three candidates, one running for each of the seats up for election that come highly qualified. While they are not running together as a group (each one is running his own campaign independently). Erik Makrush, David Clark and Rem Fox all represent successful backgrounds in their personal lives. All three are in their early 40's and represent new generation of involvement ready and willing to step up to the plate.
We need to be gracious and thankful for the efforts of all current incumbents who have served on the Caldwell City Council, they have given us their best efforts. However, I think we need to get behind our Mayor and bring some new younger people with fresh ideas and energy to the table in our city council.
THE GUARDIAN does not endorse candidates but does invite your comments to this post.
