Is Craig Watkins from Kazakhstan?
A Friend of Unfair Park read our earlier item about Craig Watkins' Web site comments and sent a missive directing us to his comments in the League of Women Voters' campaign insert that appeared, among other places, in the paper version of Unfair Park. Whyohwhy don't we actually pay attention to those things? We're missing endless sources of comedy, such as this statement from Watkins in response to the query, "Please discuss your educational and professional experience and explain how your background qualifies you to carry out the administrative and legal duties of this office":
"Craig Watkins founded his law firm in 1997 manage if you don't product results, you don't survive. As the owner of his own private law practice, Mr. Watkins understands that in order to maintain a successful practice, you have to produce results by consistently engaging business activities which exemplify excellence. In addition to a well runs law practice, Watkins' business has grown to include a thriving real estate title company."
