Letter to the Editor:
I would like to thank all the people who called and/or contacted me asking me to run for “Alderman-at-Large.” I can assure all that I thought about and prayed a lot over the situation and finally determined that I did not think I was qualified to assume the job of mayor if, God forbid, something should happen to Mayor Donald Gray.
That job is a handful for anybody that falls into it. Considering all the candidates running I do believe Taylor Trusty is the most qualified for the position. Whomever the electorate puts into this position, they are taking on a very responsible position.
Again, thanks to everyone who expressed their consideration for me for the position.
