It's just the insistence on grammar and diction is reserved in some cases and levied in others.
Quite true, when the mayor appears on Channel 2,4,5 or anywhere else, he speaks for Granite City. You want Granite City to put its best foot forward, because I know and you know there are still many talented people who call Granite City home. You know and I know that you do not want the stereotype of 'hoosiervillle' exacerbated any more than it has to be.
I do not vote in that election so I want to be careful to recognize that boundary....as much as I have to bite my tongue or select all then delete..
But I do have to chuckle how important that is to you, but how people who are a little more Republican minded are a little less judicious about their standard bearer.
Fiorina, Kasich, Bush..... all but had a generally left-leaning vote in the bag...as long as it wasn't the wing nuts like Cruz, Carson, and Rubio...
I know it's important for the crew to have someone in power with R behind their name....but why they're not pulling for Weld or why people like Kasich and other decent Republicans don't try again is still a mystery to me.
I suppose I need to keep the topic to Granite City...but who represents my hometown and your current town is VERY important, if indeed one cares about their locale. Why is who represents the nation so unimportant...as long as the letter R is behind their name?
