Tomorrow marks the culmination of two local "hot" races. Maxwell vs. Roy and Slocum vs. Wagner, seem to be the only things being discussed media wide in Central Louisiana. Althought all concerned stated their preference for a "clean" campaign, Louisiana being Louisiana, multiple sources have of course, made that a promise unfilled.
Most of the campaign fodder is so pathetic that it borders on the absurd. The one thing we have not heard is that "my opponent's dog bit the Postman twice last year, and three times the year before!" Personally, I want to know why I should vote FOR you, not against your opponent. One of my biggest turnoffs to vote for an individual are the organization behind them. No I do not mean Democrat or Republican, I have voted for both parties. I vote for the candidate.
Investigate your choices, and take a long look at how the landscape will appear after the election. Many have walked into a beautiful field only to find it laden with landmines.
Until we as a voting public stand up and say enough is enough, we can only expect more of this stupidity. Whom ever is elected to either post, will at least by me, be held accountable to do their jobs. Do what is best for the city, parish and state and you will always have my vote. Do otherwise and I will vote (and campaign) against you the next election.
Conservatively yours ... as always
