There are many ways to evaluate candidates. They all profess to be "working for you." How much that is true can be hard to evaluate with such a short election process.
There are many slick marketing tools and high priced consultants available for hire. They put colorful glossy hit pieces in the mail. They are often misleading to outright lies to smear their opponents. These "hired guns" only care about winning for their incumbent's campaigns. As such they exhibit the moral character of those who hire them!
Here I will link to prime examples of campaign rhetoric and deception. Please check back for routine updates! Click here: RHETORIC
I only use the truth to expose the misdeeds of our existing council members who are running roughshod over our election system. This page "Follow The Money" is an evaluation of our council incumbents unscrupulous efforts as they manipulate city contractors and local businesses to collect funds to help them maintain their power and position in our local government.
Please read the content of these public documents linked below and formulate your own opinion. I'm sure that along with the clandestine state election code fiasco, with its lack of public disclosure and special interest money donations you will see just what is going on.
I do not accept any special interest money from businesses or developers. Click the links below to see "special interest" campaign funding for these individuals and compare them to Cathy's grass root supporters.
