    very interesting that a lot of the big city concerns are the same in our little city.

    Great photo of campaign signs! The unintelligible hodgepodge perfectly captures the waste of money and pointlessness of these items, not to mention the environmental impact of all the plastic.

    I agree with Robin! I think we could easily eliminate dirty pay-to-play politics by eliminating the pay function for all campaign contributions. All those $millions just end up creating an environmental disaster, with all those large posters in public space, and multiple oversized glossy card-stock mailings. Add the interruptions of multiple robo-calls each day, especially to people who may not be able to screen their calls, and in any case to whom getting up to answer the phone is a necessary hardship,and all these huge expenditures do nothing to advance the public good, and should be ceased.
