George Roth: â€śI have no axe to grind as far as issues go. I think our outgoing board did a good job of listening to their constituents. They had a tough job keeping costs down in the current economic times. I hope to be every bit as good a listener and a representative who is responsive to the needs of the townspeople.â€ś
Steve Smith: â€śI am running for town council because I am and have been unhappy with the councilâ€™s decisions regarding local business, electric providers, street repairs and increases to utility bills.â€ť
