Give A.L. mayors reasonable time

Published 10:09am Friday, November 2, 2012

We are all starting to think that the election season is too long and rolls around too often. Most of us are ready to see this end and just get on with our regular lives.

A person running for mayor should have a good reason for doing so and an agenda they wish to pursue. If we support their program they should have more than two years to implement it. I believe it takes at least a year to even learn the rules and regulations that are required to carry out the duties of this position. Let’s elect quality people and give them time to govern effectively.
