  1. Running for public office includes an obstacle course of laws and filings, but the laws are out there and available for viewing. The non-compliant candidates either don’t know about campaign finance laws or don’t believe they are required to comply with them. Either way, it doesn’t bode well if one of them is elected. Whoa, $125 fine – that’s a huge deterrent to hiding your assets and sources of income until after the election.

    While we are on the topic of politicians and money, who paid for Hardie Davis’ glossy, full-color, self-aggrandizing farewell address flyer enclosed in our water/sewage bills? And who wrote it for him and quoted Winston Churchill? Well. I’ll see his Churchill quote and raise him one from Thomas Jefferson, who said, “”My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” 

  2. If you plan to run for any office in government, you should make sure that you or someone in your campaign knows the rules and follows them. If not, then they are not eligible to run or win, no matter what office it is. If they can’t follow the law regarding what is needed, then what do you think they will do when in office. We are seeing this now from the current Mayor on down.
