Forsyth Mo. - On April the 2nd, 2019 a general election will be held in the Taney County Missouri for many positions, one of which will be for the office of Forsyth Mayor. Traditionally, mayors oversee a city's main departments, including the police, fire, education, housing and transportation departments. By general definition, a mayor is 'the elected leader of a municipal government. In the strong mayor form of local government, the mayor is the chief executive officer of the city'.
Were that really true in Forsyth, things might have been better for us residents currently living in a town that seems to lose way too many businesses. Why is that so? You tell me! Personally, I would like to see a shake up of the town's leadership in favor of individuals who are willing to put in the time an energy it takes to make a difference. I feel that Sherrie Veltkamp could be a step in that direction!
Please, everyone, get out and vote on April the 2nd! Click here for a link to the Taney County sample ballot!
