Traverse City Record-Eagle


October 13, 2013

New officials will face major decisions


Carruthers said the push is already on from some parties to extend the TIF, and Luciani listed it first among issues that face a new commission.

Regardless of the candidates’ current positions, Carruthers said the most important attribute he looks for in a candidate is accessibility: Can residents reach them, and as commissioners will they listen and respond to citizens’ concerns?

But Carruthers, often a lightning rod for public reaction, also offered a word of warning to candidates: “You also have the nut jobs out there and some of them are really nasty.”

Profiles of individual city commission candidates will appear in the Record-Eagle beginning on Tuesday.
