Big coverage of the “other candidates”, hunh?

Joining Wolff and Soules on the Nov. 4 ballot are Green Party candidate Paul Pipkin and Libertarian Rhett Rosenquest Smith. Early voting starts Oct. 20.”
Judge Wolff is pressing his County do-good projects. Many of the hyped projects are not complete and the County will need more funds to complete them. So what do the Judge & Carlton Soules have to say about the need to expand health and hospital services to New Westside outside of 1604?
University Health System is engaged in strategic planning. How about earmarking some of the County’s 25% of the hospital district’s budget for that upcoming need? Does CommCourt do any planning–any at all?
