So, you’re sitting at home, minding your own business when your no-account bother in law shows up and wants to run for the seat in Ward 4, that Coun. Ed Gibbons is vacating.
He doesn’t live in the ward, but you don’t have to.
All he needs to run is a hundred bucks and 25 names and there are enough in the family to cover that.
He knows nothing about civic politics and has no business experience but just wants to take a shot and see if he gets lucky. Just sign here, please.
You don’t really want to but do you want to cause bad feelings in the family?
Coun. Gibbons has already had calls from 15 people asking about the seat and look how many ran to take Amarjeet Sohi’s place?
Coun. Michael Oshry wants the bar set higher and I agree.
How about $1,000 and a hundred signers, no family allowed?
How about a questionnaire to be made public showing what you have done for the community.
A texter wants an IQ test but you know that would never fly.
It’s said we get the government we deserve, don’t we deserve better?
What qualifications do you want to see?
