Hurricane, West Virginia is in for a BIG change tomorrow! After 40 years Mayor Raymond Peak is retiring. (Thank you again, Mayor Peak, for your service all these years!) It's time to elect a new mayor!!
With our Walmart set to open within months and the additional businesses that will ride in on it's coattails, managing our city is just going to become more and more complex. Walmart alone is going to add nearly $1,000,000 to Hurricane's budget next year! Our current budget is 2.7 million. Think about THAT.
Take a little time to think about what changes you want for Hurricane. Then do the research and find the candidate who stands for what you want. The top of my list would contain revocation of the dog limit law and restoring the D.A.R.E. program to our schools. Did you even know they took the D.A.R.E. program out of our schools? I didn't, and I have two school age kids!
We are expecting beautiful weather tomorrow so I am hopeful for a very good turnout.
