First of all, to all the candidates running for the office of mayor, thank you for your willingness to serve.

I wonder how many of you have read the duties of mayor as described in the city of Eureka charter. While it would be an honor for you, the duties of the position are to run meetings and attend many ceremonial events the city sponsors, not to influence the council.

The reason I question this is your responses to questions from different media interviews you have attended. They have been appropriate answers for candidates running for City Council who have the responsibility for decisions affecting the city, not the mayor. So at this time I remain undecided who to vote for.

Mary R. Mahoney, Eureka
