With a sense of lingering grief, the residents of Easton will be going to the polls next Tuesday to elect a new Town of Easton Council president after the untimely death of John Ford last February. Ford, who had held the office for almost two decades, was highly respected for his fairness and effectiveness in managing the affairs of the town council.
Candidates Megan Cook and Ron Engle are the first to admit the John Ford’s shoes will be hard to fill after serving with him for many years. Megan currently represents Ward 4, and Ron with Ward 3 as well as the acting Council President since Ford’s passing.
