I have read Tim Kelly's posts regarding the passing of Rush Limbaugh here on Chattanoogan News, and it was enlightening as to Mr. Kelly's political positions. Which brings me back to an earlier post of mine; why are candidates running away from stating their party affiliations, why is there no D, R, or other affiliation posted on all of those political signs blossoming on every street corner? Why no Red or Blue backgrounds signaling who your party is? Other than not wishing to be properly identified as a Liberal, Conservative, Progressive, Qnon, or Marxist, what could it be?
Deception, it's about deception. Vote for the veneer that I, as a candidate project, rather than what I stand for politically and the political baggage that follows along with me. Regardless of party affiliation, it is dishonest and craven way to grub for a vote.
Voters deserve a full and open disclosure of who, you as a candidate, are and what you stand for. Tim Kelly or Kim White, no matter. Post who you really are so voters can understand who your base is and what party are associated with. We deserve that from someone who wishes to govern.
It also brings to light a problem with early voting. Wonder if people who have cast 'early' votes can recall them if they have voter regret?

It is my observation that when it comes to our municipal elections, streets and sewers don’t care about party affiliation.
