On Tuesday, Nov. 4, residents of Martinsville will have the honor and responsibility of filling two seats on the city council. Each of the five candidates would bring a unique talent to the table, and all would make a measurable contribution.
Once again an election is upon us. Once again it is a mid-term, which brings us to the subject of voter turn out. Historically mid-term elections are marked by low voter turnout in poor and minority communities
I am dumbfounded by the views offered by city council candidate Ural Harris in the Martinsville Bulletin on Oct. 28. The interview states that, “Many times, he (Mr. Harris) has criticized council’s decision a few years ago to enter a 40-year contract to buy electricity from American Municipal Power (AMP) generating plant projects.”
Patriots, with the attention on Ebola we have lost sight of a virus that emerged here in the U.S. in 2008. America was infected with the “Obama virus.” Ground zero was Southside Chicago and it quickly spread throughout the country and has mostly remained unchecked and allowed to mutate at an alarming rate.
In my opinion, if people out there are giving President (Barack) Obama credit for helping the middle class, average workers, the poor, plus saving the world, I have to believe that they might have MSNBC News on the brain.
