To the Editor:
On June 28, 2012, the Beacon announced that Jack Kirby would be running as the independent mayoral candidate against incumbent Mayor Scott Avedisian. I have seen numerous Kirby signs on lawns around the city, but that is all I have seen from Mr. Kirby. Where are the debates? The radio ads? The website? A concise op-ed piece in the Beacon about campaign issues? It would be nice to see something from Mr. Kirby telling voters why they should vote for him. What distinguishes him from the mayor? We have an election coming up. Let’s make it worthwhile by presenting different ideas for voters to consider. There are fewer things more harmful to society than unopposed races. Nothing should be taken for granted.
