In my last blog I said there were four Republicans, that was an error. Mr. Ryan Clark is non-partisan. He wrote:
Thank you for the excellent write-up. Just a minor point of clarification: I’m not a Republican (I’m non-partisan), so I would prefer to not be lumped into that bunch. Like you, I was really disappointed with how some of our local elected officials appeared to try and roll out the red carpet for their guy. We deserve better. That’s much of the reason why I was asked to run for office–Blaise and I were both late entries to provide better alternatives than the guy who was picked / groomed for the job.
My apologies for lumping him in with that bunch.
