What's wrong with questions?

November 2, 2009 - John D'Agostino
One of my least favorite advertisements on WDOE-AM during the city election campaign has to do with the Republican candidates who promise if they are elected, they will not:

• Vote down playground donations.

• Criticize the city police department.

But they will continue to work for economic development.

OK ... that's their paid message. But are the Democrats really rejecting playground donations and criticizing the city police? Absolutely not.

Besides, what's wrong with asking some questions, especially when not enough questions were asked in regard to recent contract approvals and work at Memorial Park.

Is the Republican party really saying that praising everything -- no matter what happens -- is the best thing for the city?

Let's hope the next city playground donation does not come Bernie Madoff or Ralph Phillips. If the Republican candidates say what they mean, then they will be happy to take it.
