I do agree that um... mayors and commissioners and all those people that are in charge over our money should have and should be, their credit should be looked at. Because, if we have to go through it, they should have to go through it too. That would give us an idea of who is getting to be our leader.

Lou, you are right. Why trust a politician that can not handle their own financial obligations. That would be ludicrous for us as citizens to vote on someone like that. Well, not really remember the state of Alabama voted on a politician who had not paid TAXES in more than four years. And he still holds office today after more than seven years. He rushed and paid his taxes to run for governor. So when you bring up dirt on one politician, do it on all.
