Damn - is he that stupid? You would still have to pay for the ballots and the election workers and the coupons.

If someone doesn't care enough to vote about how they are governed and who is going to make the rules that cover them, why should we pay them to vote?

Voting is a right AND a privilege. People in other countries are risking their lives in order to GET the right to vote and here we are supposed to pay you to do it?

Mena is not a serious candidate. I thought he was but this just shows that he doesn't have what it takes.

Get used to calling Andy Ball "his honor the mayor" when you tip him for your beer.

This John Mena candidate needs to stop rewriting what has already been written. His name was on the ballot last time and no beans. That should tell everyone something. I read his letter 6 times and something is not right with this man. You can't reinvent the wheel and when your way off with your quoted election costs - it only a turn off to us all. I sense a personal vendetta you might have with the mayor title you seem to think your qualified for. Stop clouding up the water with an ego you can't cash. Step aside and go back to cutting hair.

Props for thinking outside the box, but it was a little too far out of the box. If we have to bribe people to come out to vote, something is wrong. Voting is a duty that every American should take seriously.

You people love your little closed minded worlds. Oh, and I'm sure your votes aren't influenced by big business. It's easy to beat someone down instead of lifting yourself up. Very Christian of all of you. People like you are the reason this country is in the shape it's in. I love my country, I love my state, I love my community and I will do my best to make it better. I hope each of you will do the same.
PS. I will not be commenting further on this site, too silly.

A student of mine asked me to read your Letter/shopping around transcript after class then pointed toward this site to comment. After passing the letter around in our dept. we can't further comment on your idea of Shopping Around.

Now that I know you judge the worth of a person based on how "Christian" they are, I definitely don't think you'll be getting my support.

John why won't you show up when people asked questions about you? When you show up in the past you push it off on anyone else but when asked current general questions you go whodini on everyone. You are showing signs of selfishness, mental breakdown and deplorable actions . Man up John.
