Post a New Topic

We'll see how long this post stays up, if indeed it makes it at all. I am going to be referring to the current posting on this forum, BY THE EDITOR, regarding the decison of the current Mayor of MP to enter the race for SM County Supervisor. My comments are not about whether she will make a good supervisor or not, but rather about two issues. First, the fact that the EDITOR saw it appropriate to limit discussion on the topic to registered users only (why?) and also chose to ignore the fact that Peter Carpenter, a very vocal proponent against anonymous posting, to change the subject of the thread to the subject of why anonymous posting is evil rather than sticking to the topic (a term of use I believe and one which I have seen the Almanac enforce on others in the past-deleting off subject comments).
As for Ms. Kieth's decision to run for higher office, what on earth is wrong with someone taking career steps--don't forget her numerous years of service on the Planning Commission. So she aspires to higher office; I personally embrace the idea of hiring people to political roles who aspire to make that field a career. Personally, I'll listen to her positions, evaluate her against other candidates, and then make my voting decision.
