The election for two new members of the Camden City Council is on the ballot for Nov. 4. Voters should be reminded to vote for two of the three candidates. Two of the three candidates will be elected. Candidates for the office include Bob Williams, life-long resident of Camden and owner of Bob Williams Auto Body Repair; Deborah Davis, manager of the Habitat for Humanity Store; and Jeffrey Graham of Graham Realty and former mayor. The new council members will replace Walter Long and Willard Polk who have provided excellent service to the citizens for many years.

Residents may have little trouble remembering how city council operated from 2008 to 2012. There was much dissension and animosity and anger that permeated city hall, the citizens and the voters. In 2012, the voters responded with the election of a new mayor and council member and the overwhelming defeat of a referendum proposed by the previous council As a result a new balance of power was created that gave a new, more positive direction for city council and city hall.

This year the voters have the choice again with the upcoming election to return to the past of dissension and divisiveness or to elect two new members of council who will exhibit maturity, responsibility, sensitivity and cooperation with the citizens and our own county council.

Remember that absentee voting begins on Oct. 6, and the election date is Nov. 4. Please vote for the two candidates you think will continue to lead the city in a positive direction that was set with the election of a new mayor and new council member in 2012. Let the people decide. Please exercise your right to vote.
