  1. Editorial: Support Ward Elections


    May 28, 2014 by Steve Winkler

    SUPPORT WARD ELECTIONS FOR ALDERMEN IN WEST FORK Electing council members by ward elections will provide better representation for citizens and lessen the financial burden for candidates. The current “at large” elections mean that while a candidate may live in a particular ward, he/she is elected by voters an all wards and therefore needs to campaign city wide. Ward elections would allow candidates to campaign only in the ward in which they live and will represent on the city council.
