EDITOR: The Village of Waverly is holding its mayoral election March 19. Two capable men have "put their hats in the ring" - getting petitions signed (75 per candidate), advertising and politicking. And herein comes the disappointment, another man, I thought a fine upstanding man, is now running a write-in campaign under the radar. Why? Why did he not follow the protocol and get petitions signed? Is this lack of self-esteem? Sense of entitlement? Chicanery? What an example to the children of our community (if the adults do not want to follow the rules why should I?). What a disappointment.

Of course, the citizens of Waverly will cast their votes, and I shall cast mine.
