Tired of politics

The Cullman Times

CULLMAN — I hate politics! I hate declaring if I am a Democrat or a Republican! I really don't know why anyone would want to run for office and put themselves and their families though all that scrutiny. Thankfully, there are those that step up to the plate and do so.

FYI: Don't tell us all the things you want us to know about the other candidate — which is always bad news (aka smear tactics). We want to know about YOU. Tell us what YOU have done, good or bad. Tell us what YOU have learned from the bad. Tell us what YOU want to do and what YOU can do for us. I don't care which party you are with. I just care about the future. And I will vote for that candidate, who can do that, whether at the local, state or national level. The minute you point your finger at the other candidate, you are taking the focus off of YOU, and then you have lost my vote. Can you afford that? Good luck!
