So, Barry, how much do you think it costs to mount a succesfful BOCC campaign?I don't really relish the thought of giving up what little spare time I have, these days, but I can't abide the (seemingly-)corrupt clown college management running the show these days.(I guess it could be worse, we could have to put up with the Wake County School Board.)

That would depend on whether or not the candidate is running solo, or if any of the various people who are talking behind the scenes are able to put together a cohesive slate of candidates.I think recent past elections have been won with candidates spending in the low 5 figures, and possibly less than that, but i have a hunch those days are over. Pretty sure that Joe Bowser, for example, claims to have spent so little on his last campaign that he wasn't required to file financial reports.

Joe Bowser's campaign treasurer Thelma White put forward that they only spent $44 in the past 6 months- and that was to rent a post office box.

Dan S.: Sure "seems" that way to me, too.There's a lot around this town that doesn't pass that smell test. There sure are a lot of odd happenings that all make sense if you put the "corruption" piece into the puzzle.

Since 1949, Durhamites have slept soundly, secure in the knowledge that, in our town, erection can be depended upon. Now, thanks to the power of the internets, we can spread that security all over the world.
For such an enlightened, tolerant guy, I sure get pissed off easy.
