When a candidate gets re-elected after having his law license suspended for a 'specified period of time' during his term, you start to wonder why you even bother running candidates.
If you all are going to vote just on party labels then you deserve the government you get.
If someone missing a host of township board meetings is not news, then perhaps at some level the local newspaper may not be worth having around any more.
You know guys, I get why you didn't report the Foster stuff, I understand why you didn't report stuff about that one aldermatic candidate a while back.
But seriously, why isn't a public official's attendance record at public meetings news?
