The voters will decide wrote:
Fred - the party is doing what it usually does - nothing. The voters will decide who should take on Fargo.
Dahlberg's my pick (and incidentally the pick of almost everyone I talk to).
He's not perfect, but his pro's outweigh his con's.
His biggest pro? He knows how to win elections.
He's not perfect? Funny, that's how he has presented himself since he announced for Selectman a few years back. Convenient override vote going on at the time, wasn't it?

Who are you talking to?? All I hear is

Con #1 how he is using us to further his political goals
Con #2 that he hasn't had a real job in the private sector
Con #3 nasty campaigning we haven't seen here in any local race
Con #4 his vote on the Meat Store liquor license

You should talk to more people my friend

Sandi Martinez is to far right and probably couldn't get elected,however,you have to give her an A for effort.

Mrs. Fargo is not concerned about Mr. Dahlberg in the general election. They differ so little on the issues that Mrs. Fargo won't even have to campaign for re-election. She will walk in with 75% of the vote if he is her opponent.
Haha, Fargo is going out on a freight train like a hobo. She is so damned stupid that she put together a bill and then voted against it. Fargo is the same woman who wanted coed bathrooms in high schools. She needs to go, her term limit is UP!

And Dahlberg is supporting transvestites in the women's room aka the Batheroom Bill. Another example of how he is Fargo lite. Thank you for reminding me so I can remind everyone else!

I would vote for a festering boil ahead of Fargo.
A vote for any Democrat at any level is a vote for Obama, Frank, Pelosi, and Reid.
A vote for a Democrat at the state level is a vote for Patrick and his priorities.

Fargo is part of the problem. Nothing got done on local aid, gambling etc, but they made sure they passed Cori reform. We can't have those criminals discriminated against in the job market just because they sold crack to a 14 year old.

The State Senate adopted a Fargo bill today for a property tax cut. Good timing Martinez.
Fargo also wrote in the Lowell Sun last year that she would work to cut the Sales Tax and she even filed language to do it in the casino debate.
And, the Republicans have heaped praise on her for her reform efforts including her bill to send more money back to cities and towns.
Yep tough election fight, pretending again. None if it made the agenda, she votes for every tax increase as instructed, but pretends when she is in a tough election.
