In April, the city commission will be changing due to a local election. Some faces may change, however, their purpose will remain the same, serving the people of Liberal. Current Vice Mayor Doug LaFreniere searched his heart and has decided to simply sit this one out.

“I just thought that eight or nine years is enough,” he said. “I believe in term limits, and I believe eight years in government is enough for anybody. It’s just time to let somebody else have a shot at it.”

As a member of the city commission, LaFreniere has enjoyed his time working for the City of Liberal. He has enjoyed meeting so many of his fellow citizens, including the commissioners.

“I am confindent that I am leaving with the city commission much better off than when I was appointed so long ago,” he said. “ I was appointed, and Trailmobile just kinda hit me in head.

“I have learned that you just can’t please everyone,” LaFreniere said.  “If someone got mad and stomped out, then I’m doing OK.
