He believes the city has lacked needed leadership and is seeking the office of mayor to provide it.“Anybody that knows me knows I have a passion for Alexander City,” Baird said Monday at TPI’s Political Forum. “If you have read any of my editorials or followed me over the years, you know my passion for Alexander City. I want to see Alex City survive and I want to see it better. Growing up I remember Alexander City was a vibrant community with good schools and a hospital, a place where your children could get a job and live here and could expect quality of life. That’s no longer the case.”Baird said the administrations since the glory days of Russell Corp. have not brought in jobs to replace those lost in Russell’s decline.“Our economy has been stagnant for the last 15 years,” Baird said. “We lost our mid-range salary jobs.

Speaking before the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs forum in the first head to head debate of the campaign, Seaquist expressed his disappointment in the incumbent’s time in office.“Our county government is not being well run. Our county budget is mismanaged. The working climate for the county’s 3,000 employees is unhealthy,” said Seaquist.Reviewing his own career experience as a senior public service executive, Seaquist, a retired Navy Captain who once commanded the battleship USS IOWA, said: “Leadership is in my wheelhouse. Command in public service is what I do. I’ve taken over bad organizations and turned them into successes. And I’m a long-time budget guy skilled both at budget making and budget squeezing.” Questions from attendees touched on the COVID-19 crisis, economic uncertainty, and public safety. In a repeated contrast, Dammeier cited past progress and Seaquist responded by pointing out that the virus has changed everything and touches everything. “We’ve got to manage the virus as a systemic problem,” said …
