Why would local government employees ever support consolidation? Is there a bigger threat to their jobs?
David Westlake decides that selling orange t-shirts isn't enough to finance a campaign for U.S. Senate. Now he's accepting donations.
This would be incredible: A bill proposes registering people to vote automatically when they sign up for a driver's license or register their car.
