Most people don’t like to reveal how they voted.
City Councilman Tim Leigh is the exception.
In his electronic newsletter, Leigh revealed that he voted for Mitt Romney over Barack Obama.
Leigh also revealed that he voted against Issue 1A, a sales tax increase that El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa is proposing.
Here is the full, unedited text of Leigh’s newsletter:
I have been asked how I voted and I don’t mind telling you.
At the top, I voted for change. I voted all the judges out of office except for Lowrey and Schwartz. I did not vote for any constitutional amendments. Amending our state-wide constitution for legislative purpose is just bad policy. I voted no on the jail tax. I voted yes on the PPRTA tax extension because it is a tax with a sunset and funds very specific projects. I voted for Jennifer George and I voted for Tim Leigh as a “write-in” candidate for congress. (Of course, you should “write-in Tim” too!)
We grouse around about how bad America is and certainly, we have our challenges. But, as bad as it is, it is still the greatest country on earth where we enjoy the freedom to succeed or fail famously if left to our own devices. So please, in the grand tradition of our republic, whatever your predilection, vote.
