A few of the slate’s wrongs

Please vote for the challengers and vote out the slate. Remember Trenk got on the council the first time because his votes were so low he tied and had to draw cards with Thomas McGuire. Sadly, he won or the New Jersey drug store cowboy might have moved on. Every vote counts since you have seen what slates do and why they need to be vanquished.
