Poly wrecked Pat Costello’s bid for mayor?

Troublemaker! I think I am going to kick you off of my site as a contributor;

During the campaign, pictures circulated on the Internet of women in bikinis and one of a scantily-clad lass simulating a sex act on the dance floor of Bucks. So Costello in some circles became the candidate of Bucks. Maybe a majority of voters didn’t care, but in a close city election, it can’t help.

I have to admit, when I read this I laughed for at least 10 minutes straight! I think the real reason Pat lost was his ties to special interests, not bikinis and sex acts, but what do I know, I’m just a blogger.

I’ll accept a well qualified educator/politician or a business tycoon as mayor. It was important to prevent the corrupt pimp and keep him expired from the council.

I’ll just say this much… don’t ever let anyone tell you contractors are slow. Because within 48 hours of the election, every developer and contractor in town had their Costello signs removed from their property and neatly stacked in the municipal landfill.

Normally I still see political signs up for weeks (sometimes months) after an election… but it seems in this case people couldn’t run fast enough to distance themselves from a fourth place finisher.

It’s nice to see that Costello’s people have already come up with a convenient excuse for his failure to make the runoff. It’s sort of like every failed business (particularly retail and restaurants)is caused by the economy instead of the fact that nobody wanted what they were peddling.

He lost because he ran around town with a wheelbarrow collecting donations.

I will give props to Kermit & Mike for not playing that game.

Um…for those of us who ain’t seen the picture, could Poly please repost it?

Costner,
“every developer and contractor in town had their Costello signs removed from their property and neatly stacked in the municipal landfill.”

Some of us are fickle but some of us recognize a partner and potential leader. It’s not Castillo.
