Brevard County Property Appraiser
Which one will say my house is worth the least so I can pay as little tax as possible? (Once I buy a house anyway.) Um... the candidates are:
* Jim Ford (Republican)
* Penny Farrar (Democrat)
As usual there is an endoresment by Florida Today
. But this time there is also a Letter to the Editor
critizing that endorsement. According to Florida today, Farrar accuses Ford of "wasteful spending, top-heavy management and high error rates ". They say they see no evidence of that though, and point out she was fired from that office a number of years ago.
Hmm. I really don't know where the truth is here. But reading Farrar's website some of the charges have at least an air of plausibilty, as does her friend defending her in the letter to the editor.
Plus, I like her signs. Her name is Penny, and her signs have a big picture of a penny. And her slogan is "It Just Makes Cents". Ha! Can you beat that?
Anyway, I actually have no stong opinion here. But the incumbant has been in the office since 1988. That is a long time. I'm for shaking things up occationally. So...
My vote: Penny Farrar
Oh no. So far I'm 3 for 3 voting for Democrtats on the items that actually have parties. That can't be good! Usually I'm all over the place on local races! This one WAS close, I could have gone the other way... I almost did... I had written the last paragraph differently then went back to change it right before submitting the post... but in the end I picked Farrar.
That's because Republicans are tyrants.
Poor Sam. No Libertarians to vote for.
