Richard E Anderson, Candidate for Mayor

As the November 8th election nears, candidate goals and objectives have been discussed in vague and general terms.  It has been exciting to be in many different forums and other venues, but have candidates really defined what they intend to do; their specific goals? With that in mind, I want to clearly state what my goals are in working with the other elected members of the Kingman City Council.  I hope voters are aware of the specific goals of all candidates before they make their selections.
