GENERALLY SPEAKING, I hate politics. They are slimy, and they feature people led by the nose. There are good people in office, especially at local levels, but our process is more about the money and the mud, and a lot of the time it stinks.
I'm not very smart, but I'm not dumb when it comes to commentary about political matters. Political opinions are like the nose or another part of the human body - everybody has one, they smell, and they should keep them quiet.
However, our political process is a very important part of life. So I voted today, and if you live in Quincy or anywhere else where there are elections, you should vote, too.
In Quincy, the big elections are for mayor, school board and treasurer. I've done my homework, deliberated and made my decisions.
Polls are open until 7. You have no excuse. Get out and vote!
