Who else is running for Mayor?

Lovey, good question. Candidates are running for the City Council and NOT for Mayor. The City of MV is based on the Council/Manager form of local government. That is, the elected members of the City Council appoint the City Manager to serve as the chief executive officer of the municipality. In addition to the City Manager the Council also appoints the City Attorney. The Mayor is elected for a 1 year term by the 5 elected Council members. There are 2 open seats available on the City Council for the November 6, 2012 election. There are 6 candidates: Cathy Schlicht, Wendy Bucknum, Desi J. Kiss, Ed Sachs, Frank Ury and Richard Coleman. Please visit: http://djk4mv.wordpress.com to learn more about my candidacy for the City Council. I can only hope that I've answered your question. Please vote 4 Desi J. Kiss on November 6, 2012. Thank you.
