This letter goes out to the residents of Troy. The time to elect a new mayor will soon be upon us. I am sorry that Darren Caldwell will not run for re-election. Darren has done great things for the city of Troy and I wish him well in his new position. In electing a new mayor we must think of the future of Troy. My opinion is that we need somebody with good values and a drive to continue forward in Darren’s footsteps. This is not the time to walk backwards. Don’t let signs that say vote for this guy or that person make your choice, take the time to review each person running and make your choice accordingly. We as a city have come a long way, lets keep moving in the right direction.
