Gentle readers, the 2012 election season is really starting to heat up. In recent days both Carsten Hohnke and Sandi Smith have announced they will not be seeking reelection. This means there are open seats on City Council in Ward 5 and Ward 1. If you've ever dreamed of being a City Councilperson, now might be the time for a run gentle reader. You have until May 15 to secure sufficient signatures on your petition.
