Latest in a series of posts on candidates for election

“Tonight my opponent mentioned that he has endorsements coming from ‘basically everyone on city council.’ Well, if you want more of the same, by all means vote for him! If, on the other hand, you think Bethlehem—and YOU— deserve a change, vote for me, Dana Grubb: the outsider with inside experience.”
