Jeff Mayes, No Friend of the Taxpayers
For those of you that have followed the career (I could just as easily say political career as they are the same thing for him) of Jeff Mayes you will see a disturbing trend in which he votes for special interest instead of the people.
Mayes started out in politics as a left wing political activist at the University of Michigan. When he was finished with school he came back to Bay City to further explore what it takes to be a politician by working for Howard Wetters and Joe Rivet in the legislature.
It was under their tutelage that Mayes learned the simplistic politics of Bay County: Kiss the labor unions asses and screw the rest.
