Now it’s the silly season with all the wannabes going for a free payday as an elected councillor or mayor.
Clogging up any piece of green grass and some locals fences they can find with hideous posters and promises to keep rates down even though the WRC can just demand any increase they so desire.

Funny that when you drive past these signs watch the eyes as they appear to follow you, also this is normally the only time you see any of these people, probably due to photo shop or a very old photo.

Thanks Jme57 and can’t help but agree with you on this one !!
