The man in moon was trying to hide last night but did so with
class behind a sheer curtain of pastel colored clouds that
looked like lace from the east coast of Iowa. And although he
did whisper, we had our little chat.
We noticed new candidates for the city council received a
mention in the local newspaper, we know one of the two, and it
could get interesting around election day. Since I couldn’t
sleep we talked until the moon finally disappeared behind a
solid grey cloud.
Dale Gilmour is running for 6th Ward Alderman and JJ Condon is
aiming for the Alderman at Large seat. Both are small business
owners and lifetime residents of the area.
Mr. Condon is a member of the Zoning Advisory Committee and is
on the board of directors of River Action, Inc. I don’t know
anything more about Mr. Condon, but wish him well.
Dale Gilmour is a life long resident of Davenport and we went
to the same high school. He has had his business for 25 years
and has been to more city meetings than almost everyone already
on the city council. When I was still going to the meetings I’d
see him there. He also has some really neat cars.
If we lived in the 6th Ward we’d vote for Dale but since we
don’t we wish him the best of luck. The elections will be here
before we know it.
On another note, the fires are still burning our west and we
hope the firefighters take the R & R when offered. Sometimes
you just have to step back and take a short break.
Enjoy our thursday. Even though the wife doesn’t believe me
I’m going to try to act like a responsible adult today.
