Dont know anything about the ward one candidates should be a better upgrade I hope. Hopefully with a new person coming in and working for the people of ward one along With Councilman Lang maybe some things will get done. As far as the Mayor's race goes it looks pretty good for Counts now that it is a three way race. My opinion is that a three way race always favors the current Mayor. But in this town you never know. But I think with Doris's alleged bullying of the business owners in town and Ken Moss's accusations against him will make it hard for both of them to be taken seriously in the Mayor's Race. Counts should win easily.

People in Arnold need to give their support to Ron Counts! Doris Borgelt would be a nightmare to say the least. All you have to do is look at her time on the City Council. She's killing the reputation of Arnold!
