Sometimes, I have been critical of Mayor David Felinton, but to be completely fair, I must compliment him on the positive things that have occurred during his two-terms of service to our citizens. I have found him to be thoughtful, intelligent and committed to making things better in Huntington. Yes, he is young, but he is a "quick-study" and is learning. The Mayor is not a “flashy” sort of person. Therefore, many of Huntington’s citizens have not had an opportunity to get to know His Honor. I believe he is a shy person and is not into "showing off" or posturing. It is a nice change, don't you think?
The more I consider the list of presently announced candidates for Mayor, I tend to think that a third-term for the Mayor is appropriate. Unless some other candidate can change my mind by laying out their plans that include realistic time-lines for resolution of Huntington's major public policy issues, I may well vote for David Felinton for Mayor of the City of Huntington for the third time.
Shouldn't we all give Mayor Felinton is due?
