HI, In the Bowl huh?? I see. I am furious. All that money... and no park for the kids up the hill and no parking for we who live up the hill. No parking in the Bowl that is. Thanks Not. Ok that cinches it for me on voting... I mean It will cinch it for many I expect. When they see who they thought was so good is not. I am voting totally different than I have ever voted in my life this year and in 2024 too. Obviously the gang of 4 cares nothing about other people in this town... Pretty clear so save yourself some cash folks and vote for the others who are not into Socialism. clearly ours don't know how it works ha they seem to be a bit delusional to me... SO yeah I am voting for a more conservative city council everything. And if Nelson is still here I will do everything in my power to get him out too then on to the Governor. Good bye people who pretend to be something they are not. Caring, giving, fair.... Ha
