Return Lacavish to Covington City Council | Letter to the Editor

When did people with the courage to do the right thing for our community and citizens lose its appeal?

I’ve been a resident of Covington since 1992 and am very proud of my city and what we’ve accomplished so we need driven, common sense candidates representing our interest in order to continue on a sustainable path.

When I opened my ballot, I saw such a candidate and was excited to see that David Lacavish was running for City Council. I’ve known David since Covington was unincorporated and been extremely proud of the interest and commitment he has given the city since the beginning. I remember my neighbor Jeff picking him up for City Council meetings and the value he put on attending and participating to our planning and growth.

Dave is a former citizen of the year and would work very hard to live up to the spirit of that award in everything he does. He has worked on numerous successful Covington projects that both enrich the lives of both business and recreational life of its citizens and will always do the right thing. This includes time getting the hospital approved to be built in Covington.

The Dave I know would work tirelessly for this community, listen to everyone, make fact based decisions and always do the right thing.
