If you have ever considered serving your community, this could be a good
opportunity to do so! The process is relatively simple:

it is advisable to get 14 – 15 signatures.

Diversity makes any government entity stronger and more responsive to its
citizens, in my opinion. This is especially true in smaller cities such as ours. One
person doing the right thing can make a big difference.
