I beg to differ with you, Ray Lyons did not lose the election at all. My highly esteemed friend Ray moves on alongside three (3) others to the run-offs in May. Being a military person, I am used to making it a point to familiarize myself with my home election issues, to find out who is running for office, and to cast my ballot through the mail on time. With all due respect in addition to reading it in the Kingman Daily Miner Newspaper you could have attended the different forums where the candidates addressed the issues to the best of their ability. I personally attended two (2) of their presentations at the Elks Lodge and at the Community College where it was televised to be shown at a later time, Dick Anderson took the extra step to send me a post card in the mail to let me know where he stands on the issues, also local TV station aired the Community College Forum in the community 3 or 4 times. Erin Cochran was gracious enough to personally speak me about the clean city issues at length and even made a point to walk with me where unauthorized dump sites are located in a five (5) mile area in my neighborhood. As a volunteer driver during election day, I gladly provided a ride to a voter to and from the polling place. Finally, I must say that where there is a will to exercise your right to vote, there is a way to cast your ballot. So please cast your vote in May for the City Council Elections.
