Aside from the tax levies, which I voted against on general principals, the city of Toledo lacks a mayor, a situation that this election will remedy. Now, seeing as how I don't live in Toledo, I feel pretty safe in pointing and laughing at the semi-intelligent sponges that comprise Toledo city council, but when it comes to being mayor of the city, my sense of humor fails me. The reason? Carleton S. Finkbeiner is on the ballot, and there's a good chance he'll win. This is the same Cart-man that suggested we move deaf people next to the airport, who drives his city owned company car like a madman (his official chauffeur was riding shotgun and avowed 'never again') and who has been involved in more than one physical altercation with his constituents.
So while I was out riding my bicycle today, I noted this sign at the border of T-town:
So if Carty gets elected it won't affect me directly, but just once I'd like to see the great unwashed approach an election with something close to a few reasonable choices and an intelligent, informed opinion about who they'll be voting for and why.
I'm not holding my breath.
