    Cynthiana City Commission

    I’ve been looking over the field of candidates for city commissioner. And what a diverse list it is. This means my choices are as varied as the profile of our community itself. And that’s a good thing.

    Of course I’ll be casting my usual vote for the good old boys, they have mostly my interest and will represent my view at every commissioner’s meeting, I hope.
