An Election on the Horizon!

It's still a ways out, but Belle Isle will be having a City Council election in March 2015!

Districts 5 and 6 are up for election next year. These Council seats are presently held by Commissioners Lydia Pisano and Harvey Readey. And while no one stepped up to run in District 6, meaning that Commissioner Pisano will be reelected next year without opposition, we have a contender in District 5!

Resident Larry Miles will be running against Commissioner Harvey Readey in the upcoming election. Mr. Miles announced his candidacy after encouragement by resident Machele Rowe at the recent Belle Isle 90th Anniversary Celebration. I have not yet had an opportunity to meet Mr. Miles, so I look forward to learning more about him and his views on Belle Isle over the coming months.

In other news, we have a busy week coming up in Belle Isle with a City Council meeting on Tuesday, December 2 at 6:00 p.m. and a "Tree Lighting, Snow and Santa" event on Wednesday December 3 at 5:30-8:30 p.m. near the Cornerstone gazebo. Mark your calendars!
