Janice Daniels - Now and Then

In The Oakland Press article about Daniel's run for mayor, she is quoted as saying:
“I want to be the voice of the people for fiscal transparency, honest and open communications with city management, and I want to work to improve the great family and business community that we have in Troy even in these economic hard times,” Daniels said.
Isn't that nice? Before you buy Janice Daniels's Extreme Makeover attempt, remember that she is not a warm-and-fuzzy, pro-family person. She is an anti-tax zealot ONLY. This is what Janice Daniels wrote in an Oakland Press OpEd on May 22, 2011:

"What about those folks who prefer to keep the hard earned fruits of their labor in their own pocketbooks instead of in the taxman’s coffers or the politico’s war chest — Guilty — Uncaring, unconcerned, uncommitted to the advancement of (you fill in the blank for the issue of the moment: Children, libraries, home values, poor people, old people, safe streets, parks, museums, fairs, Washington insiders). The list of issues that you should be ashamed of yourself for not supporting is as endless as the requests for taxes or retributions or contributions or revenue enhancements or commitments or condemnations."
Because to Janice Daniels, things like "Children, libraries, home values, poor people, old people, safe streets, parks, museums, fairs," are not important. The only thing that is important is her "own pocketbook."
Forget all of my words about Janice Daniels, if you like.
Just be sure you remember HER words.

  1. I can't help but think and comment when someone says they have changed so much in such a short amount of time, it does not stick. The person goes back to their old habits and beliefs after a short duration. They get lazy and forgetful. Any bad habit. Smoking, drinking, eating too much, lying, cheating, driving while texting, being late for everything. If you want to change for good, it is a slow process where time, usually lots of it, goes by. Only then can one stand up and say they have changed. There has not been enough time to witness if she has changed. So, for now, I can not trust her. Besides, I do not even understand her, so how can I really trust her?

  2. Daniels reminds me a lot of Cruella Deville in the Movie 102 Dalmations. At the beginning of the movie she is shown to have changed (thanks to electric shock therapy or something) but 1/2 way through the movie, she back to being evil and after the dalmations to make a spotted coat. I figure Daniel's true colors will come out about midway through the campaign process. With all the criticism she will be taking over the next month or the veneer of the "make-over" will crack and the Daniels we all know will make a dramatic reappearance.
