For Whom The Bell Tolls

Although Carmen Bell took advantage of the press conference and photo opportunity against the water lease, she was not willing to commit to being opposed. Instead, she suggested more opportunity for dialogue, and informing both the citizens and council on all the options. As the election draws nearer, three weeks, she has opted out of the anti-lease, anti-administration group. Melman, Todd and Velez will present themselves as a slate for transparency and responsiveness. The incumbents, Guridy, O'Connell, Glazier and Moto must stand on their record. Incumbent Joe Davis is running unopposed for a two year seat. Carmen Bell will join Daryl Hendricks as a stand alone candidate, but without his connections to the community.
