A new candidate is throwing his hat into the political ring for elections this coming April.
Michael Ambrosia, a lifelong Kirksville resident is running for a seat on the Kirksville City Council. Ambrosia has never participated in a political race before, but he told us he has plans to improve the city of Kirksville if elected. The city council election will be held April 8th.
Ambrosia has over 10 years of experience in the military, which he believes will help him when it comes to working with members of city council. The candidate is encouraging the public to get involved in the election process and to speak with candidates and share different ideas for improving Kirksville.
"You need to hear opposing sides of arguments, you need to share your ideas, listen to ideas, and you need to formulate plans together, and that's how we are going to do better here in Kirksville to really listen to each other," said Ambrosia.
If interested in contacting and sharing ideas with Ambrosia, feel free to email him.
