Local voters have become increasingly concerned at the political campaign being run by mayoral candidate Mark Slocombe whose most recent campaign slogan appears to include an asterisk.
“I just don’t know what it means, but it doesn’t look good.” Grocer John Vogt told us. “I mean, ‘Change For The Better*’? Why does it have an asterisk? Is it not change for the better? Is it not better for us? Who is it better for? Is there a family with the last name ‘Better’? Are they getting change? Are they going to be getting physical change, like quarters and stuff? Is it all metaphysical change? WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS MEAN?” He shouted aloud, becoming increasingly frustrated.
Asked for comment, Mark Slocombe said “Oh, that’s a typo. It was supposed to be a ‘tm’. Asterisk.”
Candidate Slocombe would not then clarify what he meant when he said ‘Asterisk’ When asked for comment, merely saying “Don’t worry about it.”
