Happy Halloween!

I know that it is a day late, but better late than never.

I hope that everyone had a safe and enjoyable night of tricking or treating the little visitors last night.

We did a bit of both.

Our front lawn was decorated with Tiki torches, carved pumpkins, and neighbors from several different buildings heading out candy.

After the gools and goblins bombarded our front steps, one of neighbors hosted their annual "after Halloween"party. It is more a neighborhood get together where 30 or so people get together and have light, friendly conversation.

I know that some of the City Council candidates would be in attendance, but I did not know that they were going to have a formal platform during the party.

An hour of so into the get together, all four Charter candidates, Malanie Bates, Chris Bortz, Joan Kaulp, and Roxanne Qualls (moderated by Jim Tarbell) addressed the crowd and took a question each afterward.

Though surprised, I was interested to hear what Bates and Kaulp had to say about crime reduction and economic development in our city.

All in all it was a great evening....look for Halloween pics soon!
