"The more things change, the more they stay the same" is a time honored saying that has been around for years. It supposedly comes from a French intellectual from the very distant past, and the veracity of the saying has endured over many centuries. However, as can be seen in the article above, it certainly does apply to American politics, local and national. The above article details the outcome of the November, 1938 election wherein the Republican party regained the reins of local government in Hamilton Township. I have highlighted the paragraph where "housecleaning" will be the order of the day. As a non-political observation, house cleaning still exists today. My problem with that concept is that qualified and competent people should not be considered fodder for political "house cleaning."
