Potholes are boring.

In my inaptly named community of Tiny our mayor has BIG plans. We are talking grandiose plans requiring equally grandiose budgets to fix the mayor’s imagined problems in our little township.

With Churchillian pugnacity and fearlessness Mayor (David) Evans has taken on a fight against his own citizens that sees him fighting on the beaches, in the libraries and in his building budget, and apparently he’ll never surrender, whatever the cost may be.

I have a simple message for our mayor and councillors; we’re not at war, things worked just fine before you came along so give us all a break and fix the potholes. I know it’s boring but that’s what we actually hired you for.
