Long, long way to go, Ron. Right now, there's little evidence indeed to
engender any kind of trust.
He appears to have the necessary qualifications; let's work with him and
hope he can make a difference .
I am not in the area so I can't give any "hands on" support to the
mayor, but having been the wife of a mayor in the general area, I know the
challenges are huge. He is willing to listen, citizens of WVC, so become
involved and make a difference. Help him, and help yourselves, by working
together to overcome obstacles and pitfalls which can best be addressed locally
by the people right in the community.
