The dust settled from Covington’s At Large Council race, and Patrick McMath has won the position. Covington Weekly would like to congratulate Councilman McMath on the win, and we are anxious to see what energy he will bring to the Covington City Council meetings.
Councilman McMath has pledged to address traffic concerns, sewerage and other infrastructure needs, as well as manage future growth in an efficient and effective manner. Councilman McMath also plans to consistently offer new ideas and approaches to city government.
Editor’s Note: Covington Weekly chose to run the above piece as a congratulatory gesture, it is not endorsed or paid for by Patrick McMath. The issues noted above are serious, and effective solutions are important. With regard to traffic, it can be dangerous to ride a bike or walk across Boston Street. The importance of driver education should also be considered. Drivers can be seen texting with two hands as their cars are moving down the street. That is absurd. After several years of supporting, meeting and working with many of the great downtown Covington business owners, it would also be nice to see improvements to the ox lots and downtown lighting, as well as some type of tax incentive for small business.
