  1. Am feeling un-prepared. Tried to listen to interviews, but they are all a muddle. “Yes, I’m a pleasant, friendly person” (right this second), but, once in office, the power-madness will seize me.

    Info on the judge candidates is never to the point. How many seconds after they take the oath of office are they likely to violate it? The Bar certainly won’t say, and won’t lead the charge to remove for bad behavior.

    And who are the school board candidates? Now that I’m on the spot, there’s little to go by. Mea culpa, though. I was thinking I had another week.

  2. In addition to the many, MANY out of town contributors to Lisa Brown she also has donations from Nancy Miller and her daughter, and Gil Ziffer. She has been paying out to Gary Yordon and Vancore Jones for campaign services. She is an insider.

    No Thanks Lisa.
