It is city election season once again. Time to go forth and select the mayor and city council who will lead Keyser and other cities over the next couple of years.
We pay so much attention to state and national issues that we sometimes forget that county and city government are the closest to our daily lives. The questions they debate, such as whether or not to keep open, limit the hours of, or close entirely, the Keyser City Pool, affect many of us. Water, street, police, and other services are also vital to any of us living in town.
City elections need more participation than they have received in the past.
