Some advice to winning candidates

First: I would like to congratulate both the borough and city candidates on their effort and interest in serving in public office; it is a lot of work.

Secondly: Don't think you have some mandate to do some hidden agenda.

Thirdly: What the public really wants is for you to be knowledgeable about the issues and to use good judgment in managing our affairs. You are responsible for those services which affect us all and are paid for with tax dollars. You are not there to be liked. That is just a plus, if it happens.
