Candidates For Office, What In Your Opinion Needs Fixed?

During the next few days, I will be asking candidates for political office to visit our "Cabell County Neighborhood Issues" and interact with us regarding their vision and plans for our area. I do hope that citizens will participate in our discussion here. So, here we go for today.

“The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious, said John Sculley, former CEO of Pepsi and Apple Computer. To turn possibilities into reality requires a plan. The 2008 election will be critical to our city and county. Serious candidates for leadership positions will have in mind a strategic plan to discuss with the voters. As we explore the future for the city of Huntington and Cabell County, we have to be willing to do things differently, look at what we want to be and do in the future and then work on how to get there.

I am searching for a candidate with vision and the courage to identify the possibilities and to articulate them during the upcoming political campaign season. I challenge any of the candidates for political office to discuss the future “possibilities” for our city and/or county.

Let’s begin by asking each candidate to list the issues that need to be “fixed” in our city/county.
