Anyone want to run for mayor of Geneva?

Yesterday’s Patch column covers my thoughts on the Geneva Mayoral race so far. For the first time in years, Kevin Burns is vulnerable, but we need ONE decent candidate to oppose him.

Geneva Alderman Rich Marks

Personally, I don’t have a problem with Kevin, but three terms in office is more than enough for anyone. It’s time for some new blood and I think 2nd Ward Alderman Rich Marks fits that bill perfectly. He’s served well, he’s a fiscal conservative, he doesn’t owe anyone anything, and his comportment is more suited to the job.
Ah! But nothing is ever that simple is it? Former 1st Ward Alderman William Barclay is doing his usual hem and hawing act as he considers taking a run a Kevin. But he can’t win anything above alderman and we all know Kevin Burns wins any three way race.
Although, apparently the column got Barclay to come out on Patch and say he might run.
Anyway, read the column for more details.
