Elect Merry who lives in district
In reading the articles on Philip Merry and Randy Gaines, candidates for the Aiken City Council, I question the candidacy of Gaines because the article states, “Gaines currently does not live in District 6.” Do not candidates running for elected office have to reside in the district they want to serve? Gaines statement, “though he’s considering moving to that part of town, he has to make sure it will be a move right for him.” We need a City Council member who currently resides in District 6, not someone who may move into the district. Voters need to make the right move and elect Philip Merry, who is a resident of District 6.
