In spite of the soap opera that is his life, Vance Phillips will give himself the watermelon of doom this year and attempt to be its first survivor. His chances of survival actually seem pretty good if this Cape Gazette bulb fully captures his opponent’s confusion.
In District 5, Republican Harry Orvin Strickler of Roxana says he wants to bring trust back to government. “No one trusts our government anymore. I would like to start at this level to bring that trust back,” he said.
Bring trust back… okay, I’m listening.
Strickler said he walks a lot on Sussex back roads, and he’s appalled at the amount of trash he sees. “I would like to help clean up government as well as those back roads,” he said.
Littered back roads and corrupt government are problems that could be addressed, so what’s the game plan?
Labeling himself a constitutionalist, he said there are too many government regulations, especially when it comes to the environment.
Zoiks!! That was the very next sentence. A constitutionalists who thinks the way to clean up the environment is by trusting companies to follow their better angels. That sounds like the George Bush school of cluelessness.
