  1. Bryan Townsend and Bethany Hall-Long should pick a position and run for one. The fact that they are running for two positions just reinforces the the fact that they are nothing but leaches who are simply sucking off of the state.

    Joe Biden did the same sneaky ass shit. He ran for US Senator as well as for VP for the idiot Obama. It’s not right.

    This is why we so desperately need term limits. These ass clowns are just looking to live off the government. They are no better than the common citizen who lives off of my hard earned tax dollars. It’s sickening.

    1. Actually, in defense of Townsend and Hall-Long, they are NOT up for re-election for their Senate seats. If they lose the offices they are running for, they would keep their Senate seats. If they win those offices, there has to be a special election to fill the seats.

      1. Then they should finish the job that they were elected to do in the first place. Either way, they are still mooching off of the government. Elected office isn’t supposed to turn into a freakin career.

        The Trustees of New Castle Common have the right idea. It’s a 12 year term and you earn a couple of ears of corn every year. It’s supposed to be about public service, not serving yourself.
