KEEP ON TRUCKIN
A pair of middle aged (we’re being kind) candidates running for office in Bloomfield Township obviously forgot they were no longer in high school (or middle school) when they zoomed up and down the street that township supervisor Leo Savoie lives on well into the evening hours one July night, waving their signs, taking pictures and leaving campaign literature tied to mailboxes up and down the road. Neither Savoie nor his neighbors were amused by the antics of treasurer candidate Mark Antakli, nor clerk candidate Dave Thomas. Antakli enjoyed himself so much, he even jumped out of Thomas’ SUV and did a dance on the lawn in front of Savoie’s house while holding one of his own campaign signs. Savoie said several of his neighbors shot photos and gave him a call to complain about them. “Totally sophomoric,” Savoie said. As a caveat, the pair lost in their respective primary contests.
