    Of course he’s not forgotten, every time we hit a pot hole in the road we often remember that he doubled the road taxes and what the hell is being done with the additional money.
    With the recent water woes in some districts and one fool minister claiming he’s not a rain dancer, of course we remember him.
    And, I’n sure those waiting on their money from Cliico when he got $3+ millions years ago, I’m sure he’s not forgotten.
