Fair and square election


A few weeks ago, Sharon Barovsky’s friend, Lloyd Ahern, recommended an outside election monitor to prevent finance fraud and other illegal acts during the upcoming election. Lloyd must have skipped class on the day he could have learned how Shakespeare taught us that the guilty protest the loudest.

Last week it was discovered that Lloyd Ahern had broken campaign finance and ethics laws to help a relative run for office and was ordered to pay fines. Once again we can see just how this election is going to be run. The disturbing developments just keep piling up. Maybe it’s time for the voters to change the way the city is doing business by making big changes in April’s election. We need caring people with the right focus to come back and take charge. At the very least, we must try and inform local citizens and voters about these issues so that they know what is being done in their name.
