Around Town: ‘Special interests’ and GOBs

November 6, 2012

By Pat Orr

When candidates have nothing to say, they attack “special interests and good old boys.” That is drivel. Everyone is a “special interest.” People for and against a project or policy have a “special interest” in the political decision to be made. When you campaign against “special interest groups,” you are campaigning against your neighbors, local businesses, teachers, firefighters — literally everyone who wants their point of view to prevail.

Art Bishop
I am opposed to increasing taxes in order to balance a budget at a Federal and State level. I have always reviewed and supported local initiatives such as our schools, public safety, and ... our fire district. For this reason, I cannot sign a taxpayer protection pledge.
