Voters in the City of Santa Fe,

Early voting for city council and mayor is going great thus far!!!! This years election is very crucial for the city of Santa Fe. You can make a positive impact on Santa Fe by voting for Michael and Warren Aldous.

We can give the citizens of Santa Fe a voice by ultimately re-opening city council meetings for public comments. Additionally, by cutting the Police Department's Budget. The city's current Police Department comprises 47% of the city's entire budget, while every other department in Santa Fe has to split the remaining 53%, this includes the library, street department, city administration, and municipal court.

That is a little more than 1.9 million dollars just to the Police Department each year and every other department has to split the remaining 2.3 million dollars. If the budgetary amounts are not proportional to one another, our city will never have the opportunity to offer it's citizens any infrastructure whatsoever. We have the highest police department budget in the area on a percentage basis. Let's make the budget cuts we need to keep our city thriving.

Thank You for your support,
Michael L. Aldous

Vote Aldous, Aldous, and Young!!!!

Mr "Law Graduate",
You really need to re-read your stories before you post them. For someone wanting a position in city council, you have no idea how you type. Run ons, Incomplete sentences and Sentence Fragments are all horrible in here. You might be the smartest moron i know!! Good luck to you and your failure as a city council member.

The voters have spoken, Michael Aldous beaten in the city council race by Jim Abney who received 82% of the votes. The citizens saw through your corruption. Again the voters have spoken..., so you can stop, it's clear no one is listening to you or your fathers bull, oh ya, Warren Aldous also destroyed at the polls.

I bet Warren is proud now that he is divorced and his son is no longer a lawyer and declared bankruptcy. I'd never use Farmers Insurance because of him.
