Sorry–caught the “It’s” after it went out. It is corrected on the site now. Thanks

Since the local Republican Party seems intent on finding Socialists and the local Democratic Party are on the hunt for misogynists with the Me Too Movement, maybe finding someone outside the mainstream political parties is a good idea. Things can’t get any worse since it seems that the two parties are not focused on the needs of the city rather than extraneous issues that have nothing to do with the local voters. Isn’t this how Donald Trump got elected? It seems that our educational system in this country and the teachings of civics has failed. One should be concerned about the two main parties locally and nationally. Oh yeah, then you have the anarchists trying to change the form of government.
Not everyone under their chosen flags are focused on extraneous issues. There is a lot of good work going on locally, in spite of the clattering disruptions.
The occupier of the White House got elected in part because of apathetic responses to candidates and a failure for many to grasp the forest for the trees. What we ignore, we empower and if it’s the prize, then we are complicit
Jim–the spelling error you refer to was in the press release we received. We don’t change anything in the releases we post.
