Ward backs one Republican, one Democrat
Outgoing Democratic Mayor Art Ward said Monday he has endorsed two candidates in this fall's election: City Council hopefuls Rich Miecznikowski and Calvin Brown.
Ward said that Miecznikowski, chairman of the Board of Finance, has worked with him in a bipartisan manner for the past six years to cope with the fiscal problems created by the 2007 recession.
He said Miecznikowski, a Republican seeking a 2nd District council seat, has proven his commitment to good government and steered clear of politics in his decision-making.
Ward said he has also endorsed Brown, a 1st District Democrat, because he thinks the 20-year-old is well-spoken and thoughtful. He said he has long been impressed by Brown's ability to speak his mind.
Ward said he likes the fact that Brown represents a younger generation that too often doesn't get included in municipal deliberations.
