Tonight Was Meet & Greet The Candidates

Minot Real Estate

The Minot Home Builders and Local Lenders teamed up to have a "Meet & Greet" the candidates for Local, County, and State offices tonight. It was really a nice casual affair attended by Realtors, Bankers, and Home Builders.

It was easy to pick out the newcomers from the seasoned politicians as they gave their introductions. Some of the youngens stumbled a bit and one old timer who has been on the council far to long droned on reliving an old JFK speech.

They all did good and it was nice to see that almost no seat (City or County) was unopposed. The one category I wish I would not have missed was a judicial seat and both candidates seem very well qualified. I do have a sign in my yard for the one I'm voting for but I still would have liked to have heard their self introductions but I wanted to get home to my family so I left before it was all over.

My advice to Minot voters: Get some new blood into our City Council. The good old boys club has been serving itself far to long and ignoring the people they are supposed to be serving. Please get out and vote what ever your opinion is.
