You are part right and part wrong. Let me give you the true facts. Jim Shapkoff and Claude Leach ain't help me do nothing. If they did I don't know nothing about it , but thank the Lord for their assistance. When they face Saint Nick they can reference their assistance in having done at least one good deed.havemercy can't run since he was a conveicted felon, whom by the way had the help of Jim Shapkoff and Buddy Leach getting out of prison. Rkeeton might would make a good mayor as it seems he has a geniune care for the people but he would not run against his buddy Rose ( who I think will be a one termer), so who will step up to the plate? Someone from District 2, Joe Mckee, or someone else?? Doesn't seem like many choices are out there.
Now, let me address another one of you statements, Not was a conveicted felon, rather is a convicted felon. My experience was somewhat rewarding, had the pleasure of reading the Bible several times, 20 years of studying the law. Got more hours of reading law books than many of our practicing attorneys.
And I am not beholden to anyone. Totally independent. I am not ashame of my past, I messed up and I paid the price. Argue with that. I paid the debt and continue to do so. 35 years later. What I am most concerned about is the fact that many many of our young people are traveling down the same road I travelled. Push
them to the streets and fill the jails up. Create jobs and revenues. I can't hold office, but I am not going to repudiate my responsibility to demand accountability. And all the politicians know me. They know I will speak my mind and are not capable of being intimidated. I don't want to be mayor, I want our mayor to have our best interest at heart. And if he/she do something contrary to my best interest, I am going to speak out. It can be a ringatang as far as I am concerned.
