Words I don't want to hear in the campaign

Post by bob vernon »

Please candidates, do not use these words during the campaign. They mean nothing. Tell us what you really feel.

1. Common sense.
2. vibrant.

Feel free to add more.

"Time for change", or any combination that includes the word "change". Let's face it, the only real change, is the change left in my pocket after all these pet projects are accomplished and I'd prefer it stays there.

PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.

Words like “transparency” and “accountability”, while good in concept have been trotted out so many times that they’ve lost meaning. I’d like to hear words like “integrity” and “honesty” and be able to believe that they actually hold some meaning to the speaker.

Do you ever have anything positive that contribute to anything?

Stop being part of the problem with toxic politics.
