Published: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

Morrison voters will be confronted by a very unusual ballot come Election Day. There will be four choices in the mayoral contest. One of the four has distinguished herself in a number of ways and, as a result, will make an outstanding mayor.

Sarah Thorndike is a communicator. She believes in returning calls in a timely fashion. Citizens calling city hall may rest assured they will be heard and their concerns addressed.

Sarah is not a single-issue candidate. She has the welfare of the entire city at heart.

Sarah is approachable and will have an open door as mayor. She will welcome those who wish to discuss issues, lodge complaints, or offer suggestions.

Sarah is knowledgeable. She was a reporter for many years and wrote about city government, asked questions, and tried to make sense of what she observed.

Sarah is experienced. She has served on the city council, so she has well-founded ideas of what makes city government effective.

Sarah cares. She is a lifelong resident of Morrison and wants the best for her hometown.

A vote for Sarah Thorndike is a vote for Morrison.
