After several days of the constant whining, all over this man using Scotch Tape to hang his campaign literature (that you call garbage) to a few front doors, you felt the need to bring it back up again, and make that the focus on the page.
Just because you don't support someone running in this race, why do you have to be so ridiculously petty? You're proud of yourself claiming that you weren't "mean or hateful like some folks had been". So, you admit to being fully aware of just how hateful some people have treated this man, and STILL couldn't pass up an opportunity to take your swing at him too. That's even more disgusting.
" it really irked me to say the least that my wife and I just bought another home here and have spent thousands of dollars on renovations there by investing in our community, only to have a mayoral candidate stick garbage to my screen door."
Wow, okay. It sure doesn't seem to take much to "really irk" you. I bet your are a mental mess by the time the elections are over. Again Matt, please send me an estimate of the damage repair costs resulting from the Scotch Tape being used on your newly purchased and renovated home's front door.
I can't help but wonder what your reaction or response would have been if the candidate at your door would have been Mr. Parkinson, taping a flyer for you to read, using Scotch Tape. My guess is, your reaction would have been nothing more than a snicker, removal of the flyer, no harm no foul. I would also bet my last dollar bill you would not have had the balls to go onto a public local Facebook page and confront him about it.
You may have been a great school board member, and you may make a great addition to the park board, but the only thing you are being "judged for" by me in this post, is over the way you treat people. You, and I, and 99.9% of the people that have been following that page know, this man does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning this election. That sure doesn't stop him from trying. What you call garbage, he looks at as much hard work and a lot of time spent, to put together and print. What you and some others look at as bothersome, it is his time spent and effort to get out and work up the courage to actually step onto someone's front porch to hang that flyer or speak to anyone who will actually listen, and chances are, with his lack of education and experience and presentation, that wouldn't be very many. So, what is the harm in allowing this guy to hang onto a small bit of dignity by cutting him a little slack.
