Gerlt gave his views on some of the topics being discussed in today’s city council meeting. He supports a privately-funded memorial to Tim Cole, though he questions the location. He is also in support of night meetings for the city council, broadcasting the LP&L board meetings on TV, and finding a permanent location for Godeke library. Also, he is against raising LP&L rates before the end of the fiscal year.

Gerlt also talked about some of the issues he disagreed with current city councilman Paul Beane on, such as the balloon ordinance and Beane’s commentaries on KFYO.

I know I’m sitting in the seat that he normally occupies…and he has every right to be here. But I don’t want to come in and attack businesses on the microphone like this.

Early voting for the District 4 city council race begins June 11th and ends June 19th, and election day is June 23rd.
