Political race should be about honesty

| November 2, 2022 1:00 AM

One of the things I consider when deciding whom to vote for is the kind of campaign they run. Are they mudslingers? Do they make idle campaign promises that they have no intention of fulfilling? Are they genuine? As I look at the race for county commissioner, I wonder if the Fallon campaign is genuine. The Fallon campaign signs say “Conservative” on them, but they’re placed next to the signs of liberal candidates. Drive around and look in peoples’ front yards and see for yourself. I noticed this in the primary as well. Fallon is also being promoted by liberal groups. I have come to the conclusion that his campaign is disingenuous, that it is an effort to elect a liberal to the county commission who’s pretending to be conservative. If you want to elect a liberal, then, by all means, do so. But the issue in this race isn’t conservative or liberal, it’s honesty. I’d rather elect someone who ran an honest campaign, whether they be liberal or conservative.
