Editor, The Spotlight:
What a plethora of choices we have in the upcoming Bethlehem Supervisor’s race. A totally toothless Republican Party who cannot even field a candidate. A warring Democratic Party with a Spitzer devotee fighting it out with someone who worked for Al Gore (God help us). Add to that a Conservative Party that is not conservative and an Independence Party that is not independent. Finally, in to save the day is a Working Families Party candidate who was a Visiting Professor at a Bulgarian university and once worked with Saul Allinski.
So, those of us who vote are faced with a decision as to which is the lesser of three evils.
Whose fault is this messy situation? Bethlehem residents, it is our fault. Only a small percentage of us vote in school board and local elections and some of us vote for a party that our ancestors supported.
The heck with Mickey Mouse, I’m thinking of writing in Sponge Bob!
