Patrick McCormick, Candidate for Parkersburg City Council
A friend of mine asked me, “What happened? Why are you running for city council?” The answer is simple. I have lived here since 1999, and other than houses burning down or being torn down, there has not been any improvement in our district. In fact, it is steadily declining. Unfortunately, our district has taken a back seat to other districts and doesn’t get the attention it deserves. That’s because we don’t have a voice. When you run a business, it’s a common habit for the people running it to put all their efforts into the areas that are easy to manage and ignore the problem areas. This is exactly what happens in city government as well. If given the opportunity, I will spend my time and energy collaborating with city officials to focus on fixing our issues in District 4. You are going to hear that these problems cannot be fixed. You are also going to hear that no one else can do better. You will hear excuses from elected leaders who sit on multiple different outside committees about why things aren’t getting better while being cheered on by people outside our district. This is my promise to you. I will actually be the voice of the people who actually live in our district. I will make noise, and District 4 will be heard! District 4 Deserves More! Restore District 4!

Wal and Dion — Father and Son Karaoke Kings (re-run)
From their website: “A father and son duo act from Fleetwood, UK.
  Photo of Father and Son, the Karaoke Kings“Dion has always followed his dad’s singing career very closely and loves joining in when Wal is on stage; but they have never sung as a duo until April 2020. The coronavirus lockdown in the UK impacted a lot of people very hard and Wal and Dion both agreed that their love of music should be shared across the world, so felt it was time to combine their talents.
  “We created the Father and Son Karaoke Kings channel in April 2020, and have posted a new song every day since, for over 350 songs. You can check out our channels on either Youtube, Facebook, or Instagram.
  “Despite Dion having disabilities, it has never stopped him doing the things he wants to do in life and his ambition and passion has been an inspiration for children and adults alike. He is extremely grateful to all those he can inspire around the world.
  “Sharing our musical love with the world has helped overcome the daily struggles through the past year and we are so thankful our music has helped others overcome their own struggles.
  “From all of us supporting Wal and Dion, welcome to our online family. We cannot thank you enough!”
