Honorary Mayor's Debate Scheduled
By Mary Thomas
Burney Chamber of Commerce
Seriously, the candidates for the position of Burney’s Honorary
Mayor will be having a debate on Saturday, June 1, 4:00 p.m. at
the Lions Hall in Burney.
But honestly, I wouldn’t take much of anything they said too
seriously. The questions might be real but I doubt any of the
answers will be.
The Mayor campaign is all in fun, except that, seriously, the
candidates are raising funds for their favorite charities and for
the Burney Chamber of Commerce.
This may be the one time when someone can seriously say, “Vote
early and vote often, each dollar you spend buying a vote will
count as vote for your candidate.”
Who are your candidate? In no particular order, their names,
affiliations and who they are raising money for:
Ray Guerrero, Principal, Burney Jr./Sr. High School, Christmas
Tree Land and Burney High School
Corey Yake, Associate Pastor, Word of Life Assembly, Burney Stuff
the Bus Food Drive
Bill Shannon, Community Center, Potter’s Hand and Hospice
Dusty Howard, Hovis Hardware, Burney High School Athletic
Katie Small, Rex Club, Dylan Matwijiw Scholarship Fund
Brooke Taylor, Tri Counties Bank, Tyler Roads Memorial Scholarship
Dr. David Young, Chiropractic Center, Burney High School Football
See you on Saturday, June 1 for a campaign debate unlike any
you’ve ever seen - Seriously!!
