It is just about impossible to get this information at the right time_x000B_for local candidates at the present time. Not disinterest - ignorance._x000B__x000B_This would do more for local politics than all the actions of local journalism_x000B_however financed._x000B__x000B_Sincerely _x000B__x000B_Karl Reisman_x000B__x000B__x000B_You might also consider making it easier for a private citizen to find your email address - _x000B_it took 45 minutes of searching + a long distance phone call to get it._x000B__x000B__x000B_-- _x000B_Per omnibus secular seekalarum
