It was recently reported that some issues had been found in the elections process in the City of North Cleveland., located on the far northern end of Liberty County. There were questions that lingered over the last time they had officially held an election from the standpoint of Liberty County and the Elections Administrator Klint Bush.
Bush was able to meet with Mayor Bob Bartlett this week and help rectify the situation.
“It was a great conversation with the Mayor and they wanted to know what they needed to do to have elections,” Bush said.
The two sides discussed some of the issues they had in North Cleveland over the proper pro-cedures for holding elections, and the city cited some of the issues they face with apathy to be involved in their city.
“They are good folks out there and we updated the contact info that the county has. People just aren’t interested in civics anymore and just don’t want to be involved in government anymore. The Mayor said no one has wanted to get involved with city council,” Bush said.
Bush like this is an issue county-wide and he hopes folks, especially younger citizens, will try to get involved.
“Civic leaders, community organizations, volunteer fire departments are experiencing the same issue. No one from younger generations wants to get involved anymore,” Bush concluded.
