Not much mystery why in this area. It's sickening. Not when I am hearing rumors about grown ass men conniving behind the scenes to set in motion a chain of events to get their favorites elected.
When you read a message typed into a public forum by a representative of the village that is obviously meant to cast doubt on another elected official's ability to perform a job. Especially planting big fat seeds to the public such as "helen seeemed to be confused to me" and "she seemed like an elderly person that was getting bombarded with questions".
"from a person with no horse in the race, at this time" This statement is where it becomes slightly comical. It's common knowledge you're not in the saddle this go round, but you sure sound like someone with an agenda and a little at stake.
