As Election Tensions Increase, Office-Seekers Get Loose at Candidates Gone Wild

It was a lively Monday night at Revolution Hall as political candidates in city and county contests took to the stage and proceeded to: sing individualized version of The Clash songs in leather while forgetting to strum their air guitars (Sharon Meieran), shake maracas in honor of an upcoming wedding anniversary (Rene Gonzalez), recite a defiant Maya Angelou poem (Jo Ann Hardesty), woefully overestimate the cost of a pack of tampons (Gonzalez again), and liken mixing a margarita to passing a ballot measure (Jessica Vega Pederson).
