ELEZIONI: COMUNE DI PIEDIMONTE ETNEO
The town elections are just hours away... Tomorrow and Monday, the towns people will be casting their vote for the new mayor of the town. The past few evenings the streets have been packed, people lining the streets to hear all the ideas each candidate intends to implement. Not just listening, however. Flags swinging, air horns firing, chanting, and yelling; I felt as if I were at a soccer match. I will be watching from afar tomorrow, as I can not vote. Apparently, you have to have lived here for two years. In any case my sister-in-law is running as an advisor for the candidate ALBERTO PUGLISI.
