Gadfly, “what do you mean by ‘fight the good fight’?”

logo The latest in a series of posts on City government logo

In urging you to vote tomorrow, for several days Gadfly has tried to fix your attention on our City Council persons.

You may know from attending City Council meetings or viewing them online that Gadfly usually yackity-yacks during the public comment periods.

And that he virtually always urges Council to “fight the good fight.”

Gadfly has been asked what he means by that.

He guesses the term isn’t as known as he thought.

To fight the good fight is a term/practice biblical in origin.

It means to do what is morally right.

It means to do the right thing and to try to get others to do the same.

Someone who is fighting the good fight is working tirelessly to improve the world around him or her.

Gadfly wants Council “to fight the good fight”!

Election Day
Tuesday November 5
