Local Elections, Continued.

"Well, it's good to see that Richard Klatte views 'making big oil companies pay for cleaning the air, water, and soil they've destroyed' as his biggest political issue," the DNB notes. "Because he'll definitely get that done as a Soil and Water Supervisor, Seat 3."

"Is it just me or does it look like these people had their candidate headshots taken by a blind person with Parkinson's?" I ask.

There are a staggering number of blurry pictures. And, of course, the obligatory "I'll just cut my ex-girlfriend out of the picture and send it in, no one will notice!" shots. Seriously, a passport photo from CVS would look more professional than some of these.

And speaking of professional, it appears that Seat 5 candidate Jeffrey Beck has made a career out of running for office. He lists as experience "ran for henn.comm.in2004;ran for mayor of golden valley in 2007."

In his entire candidate profile, only seven words are capitalized, including the name of the city where he resides. He notes that "everybody in hennepin county needs to learn about soil.water,and ecology issues.yet the postion is put on the bottom of the barrel by a county board that lacks these three skills when they choose sites for ballparks, garbage dumps,and condo development areas in hennepin county."

Trust me, you don't want a county board that lacks the skills of soil, water, and ecology. Because without these powers combined, Captain Planet will NEVER be formed.
