Mel Freedman: No confidence in unopposed candidate

May 15, 2014 

I note that Gordon B. Ford is running unopposed for tax collector. I also note that G.B. (can only stand for Greed Ball) Ford was one of the few – maybe the only – public servants who refused to volunteer for a minimal pay cut in a time of financial stress a few years back. Wouldn’t it be nice if he got no votes at all?
