Town of Superior Trustee: Williams, Gourgouris and Cirelli

Town Of Superior — Trustee

Debra Williams

Elia Gourgouris

Joseph F. Cirelli



The town of Superior almost saved itself about $25,000 by not having to hold an election for trustees this time around. That’s because the deadline for getting your name printed on the town’s ballot came and went without anyone throwing their hat in the ring to take on incumbent trustees Debra Williams and Joseph Cirelli and Mayor Pro Tem Elia Gourgouris. But then a funny thing happened.

Two people who hadn’t turned in their paperwork in time to get their names on the ballot did show up in time for a second deadline that allowed them to be declared write-in candidates. So now the three current city officials are running against challengers Jeff Chu, a former trustee of the town, and Steve Smith, a former president of the Rock Creek Homeowners Association. Each of these challengers is represented by a blank line on Superior voters’ ballots.

For his part, Smith was apparently intending to run in time for the first deadline but decided not to force the town to spend the bucks for the election just to add his name on the ballot.

While trying to save the town money is admirable, it also says that Smith must not think his being elected as a trustee would do all that much to alter the current debate within the community. It was only after Chu jumped into the fray as a write-in that Smith changed his mind again and decided to run as a write-in.

Smith told another news outlet that Town Clerk Phyllis Hardin didn’t give him the accurate information he needed to get his name on the ballot the first time around. Town officials claim that all the information needed was given out in the candidate election packets. Bottom line, if you can’t get your name on the ballot you probably shouldn’t be running a town. We endorse the three incumbents.

Lamented the lack of a public review process, but that will be triggered as the AAC goes through a county site plan review.bubblegum casting

When basketball was discovered, the hoop was actually a basket, hence the name basketball. As time went on, the basic backboard became bigger, and as rules changed, the net was added.
