Mudslinging : Politics in a small town

Small town politics are a funny thing. They are at the same time very serious, but often it involves people who have never run for office and have no idea of how the political process works. Small town politicians plaster the town with their signs, trying to convince people not only to vote for them, but also just to vote. Take Mike Thomas. We NEED him. I don't know what his platform is, what he will do for the county. I don't really even know what position he is running for. But now his name is in my mind’s eye, and when I go to vote, I will remember his sign.
