Letter: Crowded field means people are unhappy
To the editor, The reason for all of the candidates, you ask? People are sick of the mayor and the present city council. They sat by long enough and plan on fixing the constant goof ups of this council and mayor. I know for a fact that if there were more seats open there would be...
