With the special election only give months away it seems prudent for Ward 8 residents to consider the skills and qualifications they want to see in their next councilmember. Is it enough to be passionate or well-liked? Is it enough to be a long-term resident? What makes someone qualified for leadership? Competence or connections?
What kind of character should we look for in our next Ward 8 councilmember? What kind of professional and educational requirements would it take to really address the challenges of Ward 8?
