Mudslinging didn’t stop mayor

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

Surprising results in the mayoral race on Tuesday with Cindy Rosentahl winning a 3rd term. You can’t hardly get a cheeseburger and milkshake anymore in this town with all the business the Mayor has run off, when she wasn’t sneaking out at night injecting arsenic and chromium6 into our groundwater.

Very busy lady. You’d think she wouldn’t have the time to meet with Barack to personally accept huge wedges of handout government cheese, to enjoy while she conspires with the UN to confiscate your homestead and firearms.

The real tragedy of the election is the Agenda 21 crank only had $200 to spend. The mailers would have been precious.

I find relief knowing that sordid episode in Norman local governance is history.

Time to enjoy the blessings of all the rain that restored Mother Earth, and had the additional benefit of cleansing the hateful mendacious stank all the Chamber of Commerce bunkum piling up on the doorsteps of our lovely town.

Congrats to Mayor Rosenthal winning a well-deserved third term in spite of the disingenuous bullies. Truly an exemplar of citizen governance. She is the mayor of all Norman, beholden to no one interest. Good luck and job well done Mayor Rosenthal.

DAVID ORR
