I am baffled at the lack of coverage of the District 1 council race in north Arlington.

The candidate was never asked his positions on many municipal issues.

Some of these issues are the completion of Viridian, the city’s portion of the beautification costs, the Lamar overlay project, road expansion or possible contraction for that project, cost absorption by whom, who is footing the tab for the beautification of North Collins Street toward Viridian, and basic issues such as sparse or slow enforcement of municipal codes.

As taxpayers, we have a right to answers. Yes, the candidate was unopposed, but the questions still should be posed.
