    On election day, this year, we will see seven brave citizens of Des Moines, contending to either remain in office or to replace an incumbent. With a population of 30,000 to represent, they face the daunting task of moving our city into a more prosperous and secure place to live, work and play in. Those seeking re-election, already know the rewards and pitfalls of this city council office, and the personal sacrifices incurred for civic pride. Time away from family duties, personal affairs, while maintaining a work ethic, as most have jobs, and careers that come with a salary. Salary as a means of survival on the council, can best be described as insufficient to qualify for homeless status in a tent. Expect no fame or fortune.
    So, let us citizens of Des Moines show respect, and pay homage, to those who would serve us unselfishly, knowing and accepting the anticipated cheers and jeers, insults, and praise. This is truly a labor of love in every sense. While you will be elected by a majority, it will be a minute segment of our citizenry who will decry your performance of leadership. You will detect an inordinate lack of logic or facts alleging your job is poorly done, from this source. The majority who elected you, mainly, will maintain the silence of confidence in their choice; take comfort in this, and let it be your shield.
    Our vote will be for the best people in the best city we have known and lived in, but, as constituents, we wish all contestants, the very best. Thank you, Rob Back, Luisa Bangs, and Jeremy Nutting, for a job worthy of praise. Thank you, J.C. Harris, Anthony Martinelli, Brianne Mattson, and Susan White, for facing the fire of hard, thankless labor, and for being just great citizens of Des Moines. Please accept this “mental handshake” along with best wishes to seven local heroes.
