I attended the Times-News candidate forum on Oct. 19 and heard all the introductions. I was impressed by Eric Smallwood's introduction and his thoughts on our community needs. He talked about improving traffic-flow, plans for future growth in Twin Falls and improvements for pedestrian traffic.

Eric was raised in Buhl but lived in Dickerson, N.D., where he helped with improving the city design and promoting the downtown revitalization. We need a new face on the City Council — someone with new ideas, enthusiastic about how Twin Falls will be growing in the near future.

Let's have a new face and ideas on our board. Vote for Eric Smallwood.
