  1. A long list of political hacks who have kissed the ring. Just that phony shithead Ganim covering his ass before the nominating process . Question why fill them now after leaving them vacant so long. Oh by the way Joe how about president of civil service commission?

  2. Crazy – Ganim and Finch before him both flat funding the schools. Thus hurting the main communities that put them in office. Ganim is taking care of his cronies that he thinks are going to help him become Governor. Please – the rest of the state is not that crazy, and the ones that supported you here would be foolish to support him again since he has turned his back on them. In 2 years let him go back to his Air BNB side business or being a greeter at Testo’s.
