HappyHarry, I've been around here much longer than I would like to admit. I was here when the only bar was the Islander and I could eat clams off of my sea wall because the canal water was so clean. I was here when MITA was started and when, for a short time Fay Biles actually let Russ Columbo be president of MITA. At one time I was a member of MITA. I was here at the inception of the city during the Ed Day, Kjell Petersen days which were equaly as ugly as the contention we have now. And I was here when the last election took place and Popoff, like the srticle above states, was in favor of the STRP.
I am pleased that Hall threw his hat in the ring becasue it will be pleasing to see him under the microscope. Politicians say virtually anything to get elected, remember, "read my lips, no new taxes?" Hall will promise anything and attack anyone who gets in his way, unfortunatly that is his nature and remember a vote for Hall is a vote for Godfrey Davies.
Next I expect that Neylon will announce his candidacy, at least Neylon has his own opinions and ideas and will not be a puppet. But like Hall, Neylon is new to the island and spends the bulk of his time outside of Marco, at least Batte acutally lives here.
