If I've learned ONE THING speaking with elected officials and following politics and elections is...
I think we should just require anyone who wants to run for office to be hooked up to a polygraph machine and have to answer an series of questions submitted by the community.
My toughest challenge continues to be, everyone sounds so nice and sincere and inspriring and says all the right things during a campaign.
Imagine if we could actually get to the bottom of it and know who means it and who is just saying anything and lying through their teeth.
How's that for a Charter Amendment. Who cares if it's unconstitutional. That never stops Council.
