High Speed Low Drag

Karen Kwasny Hign Speed Low Drag

This election season is crowded with promises and wishful thinking. Many have appeared who have never considered public office before. In some, it really shows.

VB Flooding - A Complex Problem

Over the past few months, promises have been made to fix our city’s flooding issues. There’s no doubt this is top priority. Flooding is a significant problem in a coastal city such as ours.
