The Election is over

Wow, elections are really hell. One person said today, "I don't know if I can handle another one or not". You can't help but feel that way. It seemed like every race all way around us had an unprecedented battle in their town.
The first guess would be because almost every office was challenged, none of that "unopposed" stuff this time. For many years many offices were unopposed, then all it takes is your own vote to elect you.
Of course another reason was a group of people made up their minds they were going to get their own candidate elected no matter what it took. It seemed that no rules applied, do or say what ever it takes to win.
They say the higher the office the harder it is to get elected, I must have had a practice run for State Senator.

What a week, bring on next week

What a week this has been. I have so much on my plate right now, I do not need the pressure of an Election on top of it. And most of all I do not need every word I say put in the papers in a way I did not say it. The Pennysaver article was not even close to what was asked me, or even close to how I responded. The true reason for this was obvious at this point. The article said someone had called each candidate and published the responses to the questions. The questions I was asked were not the same ones published in the paper, and the answers I gave in the article were not the same as I gave over the phone. Everyone except the candidate the party favored looked really bad, and the candidate they favored looked really good. The Pennysaver is opening up doors it will be sorry for someday.
My name was mentioned in another paper so I had to write to the editor and clarify that subject, before the feeding frenzy started to discredit me.
Every subject is being misrepresented in this election, I just hope that the majority get out and vote and do not let this little minority rule the town. Silent Majority we need you Tuesday in the voting booth.
