There is no more important election affecting the day-to-day quality of life in Maple Leaf than the "odd year" elections for city government. In 2013, we elect a Mayor, four city Councilmembers, three School Board members, and have two very important ballot measures.
Our Candidates and Issues Night is one of the best attended and most respected in the city. Please plan to attend and hear statements and Q&A from candidates.
