Keizertimes recently spoke with the candidates for Position 1 on the Keizer City Council, Laura Reid and Mike De Blasi. Reid is the incumbent and Mike De Blasi is running for a seat on the council for a second time. The discussion spans issues from the city budget to growth, a library and recent discussions on equity and inclusivity.

It's long, but we hope it helps you make the best decision for you as ballots begin arriving in a few weeks.
