Kimberly Citizens Meet City Council Candidates
Kimberly, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Election day is just around the corner, and four candidates are running for two seats on the Kimberly City Council. Of the four, two of them already sit on the city council. They believe that experience gives them a leg up on the competition.
Kimberly City Councilman Burke Richman says, "We had an administrator leave. And I oversaw the finances for about four months until we hired a new administrator. Just my experience with the budgeting and the finance helped in that area."
His fellow councilman Kip Thompson says, "There's been a lot of changes that have happened in the community. And it's been great to be a part of that, with the new administrator, new chief of police, new planning and zoning. We've just gone through so much, and it's been great to be a part of that. I'd like to continue to move forward as the city continues to move forward, and go with them."
But don't count the two newcomers out. They bring practical experience, problem solving skills, and desire to give back to their community.
City Council candidate Nancy Duncan says, "I bring 25 years of management in business experience in growing degrees of difficulty. I have retired, and I want to use my skills and my decision making, research capabilities, and ability to be on a team. I want to bring that to where I live."
Vickey "Renea" Remaley is also running for city council. She says, "I am a leader, I take on responsibilities. I work hard, and I'm committed. Since I have so many friends and family here in Kimberly, I felt like I could do a good job representing them. And what change is going to take place and what development may happen."
Voters will head to the polls this year on Tuesday, November 5th.
