Common sense seems to be on the rise. Folks are tired of extremists, whether it be right or left, we need, crave, some common sense middle of the road officials that will do some actual, "within their scope" work for us residents. The St. Joseph Town Board has three positions that will be on the April 4 ballot.

If you want board members who will focus on local, within their scope responsibilities, vs national or special interests, political or personal agendas, then you want to elect Matt Moore for supervisor 2, Chris Marshall for supervisor 4 and Theresa Johnson for town chair. 

Common sense candidates, who understand the role of local government, who will work to preserve our rural character while being fiscally responsible, transparent to their constituency, careful planning for growth and keep politics out of decisions, these are your folks. Vote Moore, Marshall and Johnson on April 4 for the St Joseph Town Board.

Why do democrats who support democrats always say that they are non-partisan, middle-of-the-road, fair, non-biased, speaking for democracy, impartial, level-headed, understanding, bringing people together, all while calling the people they disagree with extremist, divisive, hate-mongers, racist, etc. It appears that your perception of “within their scope” means that if someone agrees with what you have to say, only then can they participate in the conversation, because if they disagree with you then they are divisive. Just saying that you are non-partisan, but that others who disagree with you are partisan, only shows just how partisan you are. A little cognitive self-awareness please. Just so you know, you are an extremist democrat that wants to destroy religion, free speech, current societal norms, the Constitution, and the USA as it is, and it would make sense and everyone would understand your double-speak if you just owned your true beliefs. After all, while this is still the Republic of the United States, you have that right, and I believe that you have that right. However, if you get your way, you have already played your hand by showing exactly what it is that you want, an absolute authoritarian totalitarian regime where the right to disagree means that you don’t have the right to disagree, which is what you said in your reply.
