Traverse City bar owners think that the local community has gotten too bars-y. They’re concerned that we’re turning into Potterville. They had a meeting to discuss what to do about it.
So when the Record Eagle made fun of Michigan Senate candidate Jim Gurr for suggesting the local community is oversaturated with drinking establishments, it turns out Gurr had a point?
Lots of you come to the site looking for information on 86th District Court Judicial Candidate Paul Jarboe. A lot of you click on the “Paul Jarboe” tag looking for more content about him. So here’s some content: — Paul Jarboe, Paul Jarboe, Paul Jarboe.
If you’re looking for dirt on him, I have none. As far as I know, he’s above board.
If you’re researching your options for the upcoming judge election in Grand Traverse County, here’s his bio. Jarboe seems to have experience for the position he’s seeking, dedication to serving a cross-section of the community (rather than just the police or the otherwise “good” people), and he doesn’t have the baggage of failing to address the jail crisis and excusing the sheriff’s bad behavior.
And I’m still waiting for all of the candidates to take the Dirty Traverse challenge and answer these real questions about their qualifications and opinions about their role if elected.
