    as far as I can see. I voted for him, but I'm very unhappy with his performance, for example his duplicitous actions against the Move To Amend resolution, and the sneaky way he tried to hide what the SanFellipo (sp?) bill would do to the county board, to name the first couple of things that come to mind. I no longer think that he has the welfare of regular people at heart.
    I really agree with your comment, just wanted to point out that Abele doesn't merit the centrist label, unless the window has moved even farther right.

      Yes, I voted, worked to elected and supported Abele who went to see protesters off to the Capitol on several occassions.  Once elected, though, he refused to negotiate with the same unions whose members and busses he saw off to the protests.

      He was a stealth candidate who represents the plutocrats.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      ...there's nothing good about Abele.

      Abele is a center-right politician who claims to be a Democrat but doesn't fit in well in either of the two major parties. If Republicans weren't so hostile toward moderates, Abele would be a Republican.

      If it takes a village to change a state, it'll take a city to change America!
