Do the robocalls, frequent mailers, yard signs & commercials make you an informed voter or name recognition voter? On the National front, Americans seem tired of career politicians. Are you?
Do you feel the election and the future of the city is too important to be influenced in this manner?
Here at the JCP, we think Johns Creek residents are some of the smartest and brightest in the country and deserve to know the positions of the candidates to make an educated vote.
We are devoted to keeping the election on the issues and what's important to the voters. JCP promises fair campaign coverage and accurate reporting on the candidates and issues. Likewise, to ensure fairness, all candidates are welcome to advertise on the JCP, to include links to their webpage/FB, for readers to further their research and learn about events and the issues.
Everyone claims to be a fiscal conservative. Is this really true when they are spending exorbitant amounts of money for a municipal seat? Is this really money well spent?
During the last election in Johns Creek for the State Rep 50 seat, Brad Raffensperger spent $235k. Yes, that is correct, almost a 1/4 million dollars. Kelly Stewart spent $146k. The State Representative pay is $17k per year, 2-year term.
In years past, an astounding amount of money was spent on our municipal elections, which is compensated at $15k per year.
Below are some examples.
|2011 Steve Broadbent $76k
|Brad Raffensperger (won) $70k
|2012 Karen Richardson $32k
|Cori Davenport(won) $95k
|2014 Eric Fragoso $19k
|Bob Gray(won) $71k
|2014 Nancy Reinecke $9k
|Steve Broadbent (won) $61k
