    I wanted to bring to your attention an error in this article. Mayor Barbara Payne is running for re-election and based on her performance deserves to be re-elected. However, there are two seats up for election - Barbara Payne's position and the position vacated by Randy Shelton. This may be a finite distinction but an important one. This will be a very competitive race and all of the candidates including Mayor Payne have something to offer the city of Galt.
