Change not needed in city council position | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

As we draw close to the election for city council I am reminded of my old friend, the late, great Jack Swanson, a longtime editor of your paper.

Jack had a keen insight into the workings of the city and especially the performance of the council members. I remember Jack telling me when he retired that the worst council member ever was Michael Pollock.

I rarely disagreed with Jack. We are now confronted with Pollock running for council from the South Ward. We are currently well served from there by a longtime member of our community. I see no reason to change.
