Trick-or-Treat? Halloween + Six Questions On The Mesa 2018 General Election Ballot

You, dear readers, are probably wondering how in this wide-world of imagination that your MesaZona blogger could possibly choose to feature our honorable guile-less mayor in the opening image for this post starting with " Trick-or-Treat" 
Freedom of the press perhaps? In no way are any of these posts intended to disparage the mayor - he's a fun guy.
Just one picture can sometimes say more than the thousands of words posted about John Giles in the past three years on this hyper-local news/information/opinion/entertainment site.

Don't really mean to smash any pumpkins here in Mesa, but's it's just another bogus public relations campaign when U Un-pack it:  
A Grab-Bag-of-Goodies-For-Everybody!



You can VOTE NO across-the-board on All Six Questions
That's your prerogative when you exercise your right-to-vote

It doesn't matter if you are red or blue.
