Endorse all candidacy efforts

I was shocked to see that Mayor Larry Cross had taken out an ad endorsing a list of candidates.

I believe he is still the Mayor of Sidney and as such I would expect him to support the election efforts by encouraging all candidates who have stepped forward to put their names on the ballot.

Instead he has taken out an ad that endorses only a few candidates. This is completely inappropriate.

We are accustomed to the mayor and council holding in-camera meetings to ensure the citizens are kept from knowing what is really going on. It is ironic that the Mayor would choose this point in his term to communicate openly and transparently with the citizens.

Perhaps the mayor has learned to communicate, and loudly.
