John McGinnis has been cleverly quiet approaching Nov. 6. Logan Township and Altoona voters: Look deeper into this candidate's platform.
Read the Altoona Mirror. Get the facts, know the man. McGinnis is a tea party/libertarian with an agenda grossly detached from reality.
The distorted logic of his deeper beliefs is not revealed in his slick, large mailer postcards - no government outlays for anything other than military: no grants for fire companies; no GI Bill and other veterans benefits; no senior citizen services (Blair senior van). McGinnis claims it's better to burn $100 than to give $100 to a charity. "The perfect act of charity," he wrote.
McGinnis is a wolf in sheep's clothing! Voters have a clear choice: McGinnis and his narrow agenda supporting the few, or Richard Flarend, his opponent, vowing to support our entire community.
