A sign seen in Minnesota.  A county commissioner is the same as a county councilor.

There is a sameness in message which Kapiti people can relate to, though: from his website:

“We cannot just continue to expect those who pay taxes to bear the burden for unwise spending by career politicians like my opponent. My opponent who has been in this office for nearly 20 years has simply been feeding us a steady diet of tax increases year after year. After her 20 years in this office, can we really expect her to do anything different in this next term if elected? No! It is now time for Beer, Vote For Beer!

“More and more taxes and no lid on spending in sight…something has to give; it can’t be us anymore. Next year’s expected increase is another 5.5% increase.”


Mr Beer won this contest on 8 November 2016.
