Between the two candidates still seeking election to Position 4 on the City Council — now that Andrew Shelton has withdrawn — Newcastle News can only endorse Gordon Bisset for the job.

Bisset’s unrelenting involvement in Newcastle and his vast knowledge of city issues and municipal government makes him an ideal choice and a fantastic addition to the council.

As a former councilman, former member of the city’s Finance Committee, current president of the Hazelwood Community Association and an involved citizen who attends nearly every city meeting, he is up to speed and prepared to get to work immediately.

Given his decadelong involvement in the city, Bisset knows what issues are recurring and the history behind them. He knows what the council can realistically accomplish, and conveys his ideas honestly and directly.

At a time when the council’s efficiency is sliding and the city is feeling its way out of an economic recession, Newcastle needs Bisset’s expertise once again.

Bisset — sharp, driven and well-prepared — is unparalleled, and his qualifications have not gone unnoticed, given his early endorsement from six of the seven presiding members of the City Council.

His exclusively local endorsements carry much more weight than those from regional politicians. This is a local position representing local residents, and it’s clear Bisset is seeking election to make Newcastle a better place to live, not to climb the political ladder for his own reward.

This one’s easy. Vote for Gordon Bisset on the August primary ballot.
