Keeping Watch at the Library
Mt. Pleasant Public Library — I stopped by to listen to the democratic candidates for State Senator for our district (the 46th) introduce themselves and participate in a forum Saturday at the Mt. Pleasant Public Library. As a registered Independent I considered it to be my place to sit quietly and listen. I was impressed by all three of the gentlemen and I look forward to sharing and hearing more from each of them.
Several of those in attendance to include the mayor of Fort Madison, Steve Ireland, who is running for Senator Fraise’s seat, thought Dave Helman should run again - for Henry County Supervisor that is. Ireland noted that in his life he had lost several times before winning and he encouraged Dave to try again. Dave figures, why take another beating for the hopeless cause of One Democrat in the Courthouse?
For me it is like running against the one party system in some other countries and I think it should be done for many of the same reasons. So if You see Dave tell him we need him as a Supervisor in the Henry County Court House (unless You are ready to run). In everything Dave does You can be sure of getting his best.
