We are officially in the “silly season” of the 2018 midterm general election, and we are being bombarded with negative ads, hurling taunts like petulant children: “Don’t vote for my opponent because he doesn’t like puppies!”
Rebutted with, “Well, my opponent doesn’t like your kids, or your grandparents!” Followed with the standard, “My opponent doesn’t like you … whoever you are.” That’s an exaggeration, of course, but I want someone to vote for, not against!
Being a responsible voter, I researched the candidates. I found a good, and honorable man running for state representative, Position 2, in the 30th District, by the name of Mark Greene. He refuses to run a negative campaign. He’s running on the issues – imagine that. I also visited his website, “Party of Commons,” and read his blog. I found him to be quite intelligent, with his ideas well thought out. He’s the kind of person who should represent us in Olympia.
Mark Greene is also a former U.S. Marine who served in the Corps honorably during the Vietnam era. Semper Fi Mark Greene, you have my vote.
