Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Forum a small success


Although attended by only a handful of voters, a forum with town council candidates was a pleasure to “moderate” last Wednesday night.

The three candidates (of a total of six) were well-spoken and voiced definite ideas on their preferred priorities for the town.

Broken sidewalks and neglected trees, the wastewater treatment plant project, bolstering police coverage, and addressing fire protection and ambulance service needs were all addressed, and more.

I had prepared a list of questions but didn’t need most of them, as I suspected would be the case. The audience brought them up during a good, illuminating dialogue with three men who want to serve them on the town council.

Democracy can be a messy process, but last week Coulee Dam saw that it can also be thoughtful and balanced, with people listening to each other and hearing.
