If First Ward residents in Geneva put any stock in the thought that incumbent Charles Brown represents an old-fashioned view of things, they have some diversity to consider in challengers Esther Barclay and Zachary Ploppert.

In her role as the Geneva Library Board president, Barclay has shown she is a solid leader who can tackle complex issues like the Batavia library land annexation attempts that greatly affected Geneva. Ploppert displays an impressive and keen interest in city issues and the need to continue to modernize communication methods in the ward and city.

But Brown, after 22 years on the council, has shown no signs of falling into the "good old boys" trap or of becoming less energetic or enthusiastic about his ward or city. He remains one of the most detail-oriented and analytical voices on the council, stemming from his years as a Fermilab scientist.

Geneva can boast three strong candidates in this ward, but Brown is our choice based on his ideas, institutional knowledge and continued willingness to serve.
