MY VOTE GOES TO CANDIDATE THAT WILL FOLLOW NUMBER 3 ABOVE.Breakdown where the votes may go.
Based on this formula: votes equal flow of money.
Elliot - Very successful business man in the air conditioning business. Got into real estate development and on various boards regarding his business and building codes etc. Mayor of a town with about the same number of people contained in an average condo building.
He will get votes by those who are or wish to be like him, rich and successful.
Eric - Tax/family attorney. Volunteers his time on town events more then most. Served on town boards. Likeable guy who will get votes by those who like him and appreciate what he does for town.
Birute - Collage Professor, long time resident and former commissioner. Involved in town affairs for decades. She'll get long time resident votes, a great deal of the female vote and those wishing for stable town as the others are unknown in this area.
Only one seat is up and it takes 3 votes to start the flow of money on a 5 member board.
What kind of board is wished for? It's very simple, votes come from those who believe they will receive some form of benefit for their vote.
A look at the possible benefits, or more to the point, what direction the flow of money will most likely go
1-More development, more business and more parking,
2-Focusing on the residents by improving those areas.
3-Do little, but maintain and improve reasonably what we have.
I will pay attention to where the candidates stand on each.
Also pay attention on the how its done part because for 1 and 2 its possible taxes will be raised, the same or lowered depending on how it's done. Number 3 will most likely lower our taxes.
What direction would you like to see the money flow?
Birute is most likely the best candidate for me to vote for.
