Dear fellow tax hikers, we hope everyone has had a chance to calm down after the stunning defeat of our Roxanne Qualls in Tuesday's Mayoral Primary. If we have any hope of overcoming this setback to win in November we must quickly learn from our failures and rebuild.
We are asking for reader participation. Tell us, why do you think Roxanne Qualls lost this primary? Is it because people didn't know about all the taxes she raised. Is it because more people weren't aware of her pivotal role in passing the Bob Bedinghaus Stadium Tax? Is it because people for some reason didn't think it was appropriate for her to run a campaign ad showing a dog pissing on a Cranley sign? Is it because her legions of supporters simply forgot to vote that day?
After you explain Roxanne's loss, we'd also like your advice explaining how we can turn this campaign around. We need Roxanne Qualls to win in November. If she loses, the streetcar might be stopped, the parking plan might be stopped, and we might not get any new tax increases for a while. We must turn this around.
