I would like to commend all candidates in the municipal election this year. The Kiwanis Club of Crestview invited all of the candidates to attend a meeting for us to meet them. All but one candidate attended.
I also attended the forum at Warrior's Hall put on by the Chamber of Commerce. At both of these events, all candidates expressed their thoughts of the present and future of Crestview.
Never was one negative towards their opponents. All were courteous towards people asking questions.
As soon as the election was over, I saw all candidates on the road picking up signs. As of this writing, very few signs do I see along the road.
I believe Crestview is very fortunate to have people willing to spend the time and effort to run for positions in city government, keep their positions positive and not attack other candidates.
Now if we can get the residents to participate in the election process, the effort would be complete.
