Every time I turn around, it seems another politician has his hand in my pocket. It’s like they think there’s some kind of bottomless well there and as long as I still have pockets, they can keep pumping the well. Bad news, guys, there’s only lint in there and as it is, I had to rent that. There has got to be someone who has my priorities in mind.
This election season, I’ve been looking for political types who understand that the money in my pocket is mine, politicians who believe they can fix the traffic messes around without raising taxes once more, who will try to fix the problems in this state with money that is already being collected and not a dime more. I believe I have found those people in Mark Hargrove and Tim Miller.
Take a moment and visit the public disclosure Web site to see what the candidates are spending on this election. Between Miller and Hargrove, they’ve spent just over $25,000 (as of Oct. 13), while the opponents have spent over $235,000. And that seems to be their attitude – just throw more money at it. But guys, the money that runs the state is my money.
You have to wonder about the mentality of a guy spending $188,000 to keep a job that only pays $84,000 over two years. It sounds to me like someone who is power-hungry and hasn’t a clue as to the value of a dollar. Or he doesn’t know how to add things up.
Join with me in choosing Mark Hargrove and Tim Miller as the next state representatives in the 47th District. Together, they have our priorities in mind.
