As election day draws closer we get more emails from residents expressing their opinions on what’s been going on this election season.  Here is a piece sent into us by a local resident and it has been published here with their permission.

Every election gets dirtier and dirtier. The sins and secrets of anyone running is published. Why? Why? Why? Isn’t an election about what each candidate can or hopes to do for the Village. Why do we have to have the skeletons come out of the closet? As long as the person running for office is capable to hold that position, why do I or anyone else care what he/she does in their private lives? Why do I care if someone serves coffee for a living, as long a they take my tax dollars and give me a return for them, they can chew on crayons for all anyone should care. Since I have been in the Village the politics have gotten nastier and nastier, it doesn’t matter what credentials you have for the office, what matters is what kind of dirt can the party find on you to exploit you, and make you wish you hadn’t gotten up in the morning. I can’t wait for this election to be over, I want the people that are capable and want to run this village to be elected. I do not want to go to my mailbox and find the Village National Inquirer. The one thing that the Coalition Party has done is not attacked any of the PVP candidates personally. They have attacked the way they have run the Village and that is what I need to see and read, not that someone scratched their nose 4 years ago and someone saw it. What the PVP has done with their campaign is what they do at all the Village Meetings, not respect the residents that elected them to that office and not respect that we are informed, smart and want what is best for the Village. Stop the mud slinging, stop the negativity, vote for the Coalition Party, vote for people that respect the feelings of the residents, vote for honesty and integrity, Vote Coalition
