The time has come for people seeking municipal office to start campaigning. In many areas, the hopefuls will canvass door to door. Be sure to ask them their plan for/view on local heritage. Know what their outlook is and their connection or plan might be. In many cases, you may get answers that feel canned but ask them for their real perspective. Heritage preservation and adaptive reuse is just good business and a candidate’s outlook on the subject may speak to their overall judgment.
Vote if you’re eligible. It is your civic right and responsibility to be part of the process.
Is there a past civic leader you really admired? Let us know. We’d love to share your memory!
