    Ball, Hogan will help steer city in the right direction

    Elect candidates who have walked the walk of service

    To the Editor: I sometimes hear that deciding who to vote for is too complicated. It needn’t be. We all know the truism, “Actions speak louder than words.” Four of the commission candidates are longtime residents, 20-45 years in the city, with a resume

    Ball has skills, experience to move our city forward
