Vote for Ricky


Who else out there is sick up to their eyebrows with our congressional race and all their negative ads? Do they think we’re all just idiots? I haven’t seen one positive ad yet from either Capps or Maldonado. And where does all the money come from? Good Lord!

I do have a moderate alternative however. I am the proud caretaker of a fine rescue Chihuahua named Ricky. He is probably as intelligent, and certainly has greater character and integrity, than either of these [candidates]. I intend to write him in on my ballot in November, and hope you will too, just as a protest to this kind of campaigning. Please vote for Ricky Hanson as your congressperson on November 6.
