But being a rookie, who can she trust?

She calls Stortz a "trusted friend" that should scare everyone.

Doesn't scare me and most of the people that I talk to.

Interesting that Stortz helped Parente and she won while Moccabee helped Alford and she lost big time.

Too bad the Republicans don't wake up and smell the coffee.

8:25 don't forget Schaffrick also helped Alford. Enough said!

I hope Mary learned if she ever plans to run again.

If I recall properly, Parente was Stortz's treasurer.

Do you think that that might haveadded to her attracting so many votes?
