I know(too)personally several of the candidates, and I know if we owe them anything, it's very attentive monitoring...
Me and my friends won't be asking for or granting favors. We want honest, fair political policies that benefit our taxpayers, not our local career politicians who have done nothing but kiss the right butts to promote themselves.
A few of these candidates are also trying to pile on the public pensions with new positions, when they weren't honest or professional with their previous ones. As informed voters, we shouldn't feed their greed.
