Nearly died laughing?

As I was reading the Wednesday, Pahrump Valley Times, I nearly died laughing. The byline read, “Dolan announces bid for commission seat.”

Who is he kidding? Does he really expect to get elected to a Commissioner’s seat. Mr. Dolan goes on to state that he is a, “As a self-described “fiscally conservative Bob Dole Republican.” Again, who is he kidding?

The voters should ask Mr. Dolan a question. If he is a Republican, why was his campaign sign set up in the Progressive Democrat’s tent? This was in 2010 election cycle at the Fall Festival.

Something else made me have pains in my side with the above statement. A Fiscal Conservation, WOW, does he think we are stupid as he is? Mr. Dolan has voted to spend our tax money on every crazy agenda item. He has voted to spend money on furthering the study on Harley World.

He voted to raise the property tax rate to cover up the deficit spending that has caused the town budget to be in the red. They tell you it balanced but do a little research and you will find that’s a lie.

He also calls us spectators at the town meetings, “Peanut Gallery.” Also tells seniors citizens to buy hearing aids.

He also voted for the current Town Manager who made no bones about pushing incorporation down our throats. Mr. Dolan will also vote for that.

I could go on and on. But we do not need another RINO in the Nye County Board of Commissioners. Do your research before you vote for an imposter.
