The Mayor only received $500/mo? The council members less? No wonder the management of the city is so unprofessional. I guess you get what you pay for.

I planned on running but after a lay off a little over a year ago I find myself financially strapped. The cost and time it would take would be taking time from me finding a new employer. With unemployment gone I am now bleeding my savings just to make ends meet. I would hope someone that feels this council is going in the wrong direction would step up and challenge for a seat. The current members are beneiftting from the poor economy.

It's also very difficult to unseat an incumbent--the main reason I think term limits are a good idea. When the incumbents are doing a good job (and I think all three are), it's even harder to unseat them.
