So many choices, none of them good

Well here is election time again for the president of our country. You would think out of 300 million people we could get one good candidate. Neither candidate has a clue what to do during this financial crisis and neither has ever had to live like a middle class citizen. Both have been fed with a gold spoon.

Now that we have to vote for jail and sheriff’s office at a tune of $91 million  on bond issue, which by the way, is not the true cost because our elected commissioners will, not give us the true figure over 25 to 30 years to pay for this bond.

Also, while we are at it, they have put two amendments on this card that is bad for the public but great for the developers. Amendment No. 2 and No. 3 should be voted down with a loud no. If you have not researched these yet, you should before you vote.

As a reminder please vote. Oh and really think about why we need a $16 million sheriff’s office.
