For as long as I've been alive, Mayor Peak has been a constant in my hometown. He's a fixture of my town, an icon. And after 44 years as mayor, he's stepping down.
Times have changed. When he first served, our city had about 1,300 people. We're at nearly 6,000 and growing! We had one stoplight, now I can think of nine. (Hey, that's big time!) You've helped us grow and guided us well. You not only watched over our city, but also taught our kids at the high school. We appreciate all you've done for us!
Mayor Peak, we were lucky to have you! You will be missed. It will be hard to train myself to call anyone else Mayor, but I guess it's about time to give it a whirl.
There are three candidates for mayor: Sam Cole, Scott Edwards and Frank Sergent. With the new Walmart going in at the Hurricane Exit, budgeting and business taxes have become a big issue. I'm wondering why that dog limit law isn't at the top of everyone's list, but that's just me. :o)
Election day is June 12 -- study up and get us another great mayor!
