City Council Candidates Make Final Election Day Pitch On The Chad Hasty Show [AUDIO]

Numerous city council candidates called in to give their final pitch before election day on the Friday edition of The Chad Hasty Show.

In the District 1 race, both challengers Lana Bear Moore and Frank Gutierrez agreed that LP&L is the most prevalent problem in their district. Moore stated that LP&L is abusing their power and hurting the citizens with outrageous rates, and severely needs to be reigned in. Gutierrez, on the other hand, said that would prefer to meet with LP&L official and city council members in order to determine what the best course of action would be.

One of the more hotly contested races is in District 3, with three very different candidates vying for office. Jeff Griffith boasted that his extensive business experience makes his the best candidate for the job, and stated that city needs to focus on living within its means. Maurice Stanley remained adamant on his position of city maintenance and taking care of what the city already has before they focus on new expansion and projects. Deanne Clark said that her main goal was to stop wasteful spending in city council and ensure the citizens’ voice could be heard, and added that while her two opponents seemed to be willing to raise taxes, she would not.

District 5 councilwoman Karen Gibson also called in and spoke about the city budget, saying that while she supports the need for city maintenance, it cannot all be done within a single budget cycle. Gibson also pointed out that while her opponent Brian Carr is claiming to be a conservative, his blog postings clearly show otherwise.

Both Brian Carr and District 1 councilman Victor Hernandez declined to call in.

Polls will be open Saturday, May 10th from 7 AM to 7 PM. KFYO will also be broadcasting a live Election Night special with Chad Hasty, Ken Corbin, and Allen Corbin Saturday night from 7 PM to 10 PM.
