WSLS Channel 10 in Roanoke just ran a story about the fundraising efforts of Democrats for the Roanoke City Council. It is pretty amazing that an individual raises over $70,000 to run for a part-time job that pays $15,000 per year. Of course, it is a city and most of the money is raised by Democrats who pander to the poor voter, but push policies that do damage to the common folk.
If you live in Roanoke City, be sure to take a good look at candidate Mike Powell. Mike Powell believes in restrained, responsible government. Many people are looking at November to begin making a dent in Congress' Leftist delegation, however the people of Roanoke can send a message to the mavens of Big Government in their own city council by voting for Mike Powell, the candidate endorsed by the Roanoke Tea Party.
If you want to bring the founding principles of limited government into the 21st century, vote Mike Powell for the Roanoke City Council.
