Laurin, a sitting member of the current Council ruminates this evening on what makes a good Mayor and Councilmember.
Public service is not a right, but a privilege. Holding public office can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life. Being a good mayor or a good council member certainly comes by trial and error and by experience itself. The bottom line is to never lose sight of what drew you to the position in the first place.
Laurin, a one-termer (so far), is up for re-election with Mark Kleinschmidt, Ed Harrison and recent appointee James Merritt.
With elections almost 8 months off it appears that the jockeying for position has begun.
