When it comes to elections, this is my nails-on-a-chalkboard issue. If you place campaign signs, send out mail pieces, give out bumper stickers or buttons, or create any other written campaign materials, please get someone who knows how to write to proofread it before you go to print.
I promise you that if I see grammatically incorrect campaign materials, I am writing a hit piece about your campaign even if I support you. There is no excuse for crappy campaigning except that you really do not care enough to do it right. Therefore, you have no business being elected to public office.
Let me say this. It is June 7; June 7, 2016; or 6-7-2016. It is NEVER, NEVER, EVER June 7th, or worse yet, June 7th, 2016. If you are so damn stupid that you do not know the difference between cardinal and ordinal numbers, and when to use them correctly, you do not deserve to be elected to any office. This is sixth grade English for crying out loud!
And for those running for school board, if you cannot write a grammatically correct ballot statement, you have no business having anything to do with educating our children. I’m serious. Expect a negative article about your campaign.
Remember, June 7, June 7, June 7 . . . June 7. That is not so difficult, now is it?
