Joel Sinclaire

He was a good friend of mine.  A Democratic activist who cut his teeth in politics back in his home state of Maryland.  Which is also my home state, and something we bonded on, for the Land of Mary is a marvelous locale from which to hail.   Joel didn’t have to take on Don Stapley in Maricopa Supervisory […]
