CHANGE

Thursday always makes me think of my old show “TRAVELIN’ MAN”. We aired on Thursday nights at 7pm locally for so long that I sometimes find myself trying to turn on a phantom TV set on Thursdays, the way you’d try to scratch a phantom limb if you had one and felt an itch (BONNIE’S NOTE: I asked the Mayor for further clarification on this, but he just ignored me and kept talking). So I know a thing or two about communication. And when my opponent says he wants to bring about CHANGE to the office of the Mayor, I’ve got to speak up.

Change? How is a guy who moved to Chessup after high school and helped build that place into a thriving community going to come back now, and just because his mom owns a house on Spring St., thinks he’s going to run against me for Mayor on a platform of change? Everybody knows I’m the guy who will change things here in Verne. I’ve been trying to change stuff around here for six years, so it’s time to give me a chance to try for another two years. That’s the kind of CHANGE we can all depend on!

By the way, we’re going to have a little fundraiser/barbeque in the park on Sunday, weather permitting. Please let Bonnie know if you can volunteer in some way.

God Bless Verne, and God Bless America.

Mr. Mayor, you know I just loved that show! And we're looking forward to seeing you at the Senior Center next week!

Real change takes more than slogans, Garner. What have you done for us lately?

Who cares what he's done lately! I voted for him for Junior class president and have been proud to vote for him for mayor too.

I think a great campaign commercial would be to re-enact the day that Blank slipped on his lunch in the cafeteria!

LOL, Hobert, I remember that day like it was yesterday!

BTW, why did you stop selling Slim Jims at the Shop-N-Go?? Now I've got to go all the way to Chessup!

Hey Oak,

Long time no talk! Don't tell me you've taken to buying ethanol at Chessup too along with the Slim Jims.

If it weren't for Lamona at home I'd still carry the jerky, she complains about it giving me the wind. I guess it was a case of one Dutch Oven too many...
