For those who live in the following wards, I urge you to vote for the following people:

Ward 3: David Puente
Ward 4: Our very own man... (Drum roll, please) Carl Sullivan
Ward 7: Reginald C. Mitchell
Ward 8: Lou Barlow

Our current city council needs new blood, and we need these people to see if they can get some big things done for our future.

How do we know Carl Sulivan?

He's a regular viewer of this forum and has been with us since the beginning. He even posts occasionally. He used to be more active with us on past city forums.

Carl is a good friend of ours. He was on the MAPS Oversight Board for the entire life of it, and tried to fight a lot of the corruption that was going on in our city government. He knows the true story about Mr. Humphries. He'd help continue to clean up the corruption in our city government.

I think Midtowner would be proud if Carl was elected. Carl supports similar ideals as Midtowner regarding corruption.
