So how's that "Hope" and "Change" working out for you? I am counting down the days until 2016.

It is unfortunate that the last 2 - 3 elections ended up as bruising, hyper-partisan political theater that dissuaded so many interested local politicians from considering running. Seriously, who wants the "other" political party digging through their backgrounds or attacking family members or looking into candidates pay packages? No thanks. Its no different than State or Federal elections anymore....if you run, plan on everyone knowing everything about your past, your family's history and reducing that rhetoric to one liners in mailers. This flies in the face of our goals as leaders of talking about what we need to deal with in the real world.
