Ketchum voters: Study options

The voters of Ketchum have an extremely important decision to make in November. Do you change to a council-manager form of government or keep your current form of elected officials with a city administrator. Study the record over the last three years during a very difficult economy, and ask yourself how has Ketchum weathered the storm?

As sheriff during this time, Mayor Randy Hall came to me with a vision of enhancing his police department and finding efficiencies. The mayor and council showed courage in making a tough decision that resulted in over $600,000 in taxpayer savings in just two years. I have watched this council and mayor make countless good decisions over the past few years that has kept Ketchum in great financial shape.

In a small city, it is so important to have the ability to go to your elected officials and voice your concerns to affect change. Don't lose that!
