Today’s news:

Primary will cost voters pretty penny

TimesLedger Newspapers

The local press is awash with statements that the upcoming Democratic primary for the nomination in the 6th Congressional District is a short time for the candidates to get themselves known.

You can be sure that every enrolled Democrat — incorrectly referred to as registered Democrats because you register to vote but enroll in a party — will receive a hundred mailers, 37 robo calls, 17 introductions at transit stops and 106 handshakes during the short, get-to-know-you campaign.

When we add up the June 26 vote and the total cost by all the candidates of the money spent, plus the cost of Primary Day election inspectors, I am sure we will find that it cost more than $60 per vote for the short-time primary.

God bless America; pass me the aspirin.
