s-city.council (1)Most likely you are not aware that the filing date to get on the ballot for the November 4, 2014 Elections is here.

There are three positions on the Old River-Winfree City Council coming up for re-election or replacement.

This is your time to make a difference in our community.  

No one in Old River-Winfree seems to know these date or doesn’t want to get involved and that is a shame.  We need younger people to fill our City Government; to step up with new ideas, fresh perspectives.  This will bring new energy into our community and guide us into the future always looking out for the interest of the citizens of Old River-Winfree.

We need the citizens in Old River-Winfree between the ages of 35-55 with life experiences, both personal and business for these three positions.

Question:  Can you name the current council members of  Old River-Winfree?  Do you even know who the Mayor is?

All you need to do is click on the link below and read up on what serving in our town would involve and some rules and regulations.    

A couple of quick things to know:  To put your name on the Ballot to run for City Council, just go by the Old River-Winfree City Office and ask the City Secretary for an application.  Pretty simple really.  You must be a resident of Old River-Winfree and pass a background check.  Any other information you can glean from the information below.

If you think you or someone you know could really benefit our town, please pass this on to them.  It’s either time for a change or to continue with the old status quo (state of affairs of Old River-Winfree continuing the way they have been).  Your decision!
