Editor, The Messenger,

Athens City voters have an opportunity to keep a person of high integrity on city council.

I have known Micah McCarey since the day he arrived in Athens as a student eighteen years ago. I know him to be an intelligent, sincere young man who has brought a unique energy to council since his appointment in June.

I realize that Micah is new to politics, but he’s not new to leadership. He’s held leadership positions throughout his student and professional years. He’s inquisitive and curious which will serve us well as he serves on council.

Although he’s an employee of Ohio University, he’s well-aware that the city is not one-dimensional. He appreciates and understands the diversity of the Athens population and is dedicated to listening to and serving all citizens.

Early voting is happening now at the Athens County Board of Elections at 15 S. Court Street, or you can vote on Nov. 2 at your polling place.

Please vote for Micah McCarey for At-Large Athens City Council.
