Wow – I’m actually FOR the incumbent….

The main issue in the Waukegan, IL, election for City Clerk is parking charges. The problem is that workers, students, and dare I say it lawyers, parking in the downtown area found that it was cheaper to just leave their cars there, get a $5 ticket, and pay it, than park in nearby lots. The City Clerk commissioned a study and guess what, found that if they raised the fines to $20, the problem would go away.

Of course some firebrand decided this was “unfair” and would cause people not to shop downtown, and is running against the incumbent on a “keep parking rates and fines” low ticket.

The incumbent is right, of course. If the newbie wins, parking will be chaos again in downtown and soon after the election, he will be forced to change his mind. Sound familiar?
