Our household has four registered voters and we all received a letter from Candidate Magel. I checked with some friends and YES, everyone registered to vote in their households each received one.

This is a strong indication of poor fiscal decision making, and lack of attention to detail. Apparently, he has more money to spend than all the other candidates put together and seems compelled on spending it.

In previous campaigns our home received one letter and it was addressed to "Head of Household". Perhaps Candidate Magel needs some more experience in Government before running for our City Council.

Our next Council is going to have to make some very tough financial decisions and our house is voting for Keister, Forcht and Batte. We like the sound of Joe Batte, he has stayed the course and is once again offering his service to our community. We have also heard that he is tighter than the bark on a tree and that's the man I want looking after my taxpayer money.

It seems the Magel mindset is, "I've got it, so I'll spend it"

Reminds me of the Arceri gang, and look at the problems they caused. When you look at your utility bill you can thank the Arceri gang for the ever increasing cost of just enjoying Marco....it didn't used to be like this.

I wonder how many registered voters there are in the Magel household and if they each received a letter from their candidate??

If you want more of the same and keep the Arceri gang in power, vote for "MORE MONEY MAGEL".

This poll only works if you pick 3 candidates....What if there are not 3 for whom you want to vote?

Ed, You are right-- it wasn't quite as user-friendly as I intended, but we're fixing it-- Thank you for pointing it out!

I don't like the options, give me 4 different ones to chose from.

Stop your complaining and run for office yourself if you don't like the candidates. At least they have the guts to run for office while most of you sit cowardly behind your computers and complain about them.

I fail to see where I am complaining. I would just like different candidates.

Of the four candidates running for office, the relatively unknown Mr. Magel will not, repeat NOT receive my vote. I’ll share three of several reasons:
1. Mr. Magel is the only candidate who wants Marco’s spending cap modified to provide an end run around its limitations.
2. Despite his claim of “independency”, Mr. Magel’s candidacy is reportedly supported by people like John Arceri, Monte Lazarus, Joe Granda, Ed Issler, et al. To vote for such an “independent” candidate requires a giant leap of faith that is unwarranted and risks regrettable consequences
3. One has to wonder about a man who spends twenty thousand dollars trying to get a job that pays six thousand per year.
…just one man’s respectful opinion.
