I was walking down Illinois Ave. on Thursday and ran into Lance Jack. He looked in fighting trim and we chatted about the election a little. I told him that I thought it was ironic that he had been on the city council for maybe the best 4 years in Carbondale's history and might not be reelected. I also told him that his separation from Harbaugh's hurt his story IMHO. We talked about what his campaign plans were and about the anti-smoking issues a little.
Maybe Lance's record of being on the city council for 4 great years is enough to warrant reelection? If we are interested in the economy of the town, he might be our best choice. I'm note sure what accomplishment or idea we can point to as his. But he has been part of an effective council.
What do you think? Ha Lance earned 4 more years of service or maybe someone else instead? Anyone have a comment about what Lance has done for better or worse as a council person?
