    Bad people have no business displaying bad character.
    Believe all the good stuff!
    Never forget the bad people!
    It is bad when candidates have to pay to advertise their name on ads around town
    because no one will waist their time to support them!
    Palmdale First is on the move!
    This is the only team we should all be on!
    Go team Sandy!

    I hope the candidates can expose Maggie Campbell. This candidate has harassed me repeatedly and had other do so as well. Please research her before considering giving her your vote.
