As a new resident of Forest Park, I have read about the election in this paper.

After watching the last town meeting, I could only be impressed with how the mayor handled himself. He had the facts in hand. He answered the questions. He really showed that he is a standup, smart mayor.

The person running against the mayor sounded more like a kid in the school ground that wanted his bat and ball to go home.

Reading about these two men was one thing; seeing them and hearing them on television was something else.

I run a heating, air conditioning and appliance business. I would rather have a person that knows business run this town not a crybaby.
