DeLuca wants to continue what she calls the "great communication" between residents and the council. Keith Adams 36, who was appointed to the council in February, agrees those also will be his concerns. I want to feel that I'm part of the community, and not just because of my address," Adams says. "If you live in a community, you shouldn't just be passive. You should be actively involved ..... securing managed growth in the community will be the No. 1 issue. Harmon L. Butterfield 44,a lifelong resident who is running his first political race, says he wants to bring a business perspective to the council. Butterfield, who owns a trucking business, says he is a fiscal conservative and wants to encourage commercial growth in the city so that residents can spend their money closer to home.
