    sorry allen, i don’t want to hijack your article, but i feel i had to comment on this. if my post does not fit, please delete.

    i am honored to be part of this large group of antioch residents who want/ ask/ looking for change the way our sitting council is doing business.
    common sense politics, back to the basics, taking back our city, listen to the people, is needed.
    i just hope from the bottom of my heart that antioch voters do not vote the very same people into office over and over and expect different results.
