In this week’s episode of Suburban Election Shenanigans, we cast our attention to that most familiar arena of civic ridiculousness, Seven Hills.

It was there that folks got riled up earlier this summer when a group of six citizens put out a newsletter claiming city officials hire and promote their friends and generally screw up city finances in bountiful ways.

Longtime readers of Scene may remember Bentkowski, the Bizarre Boy Mayor whose tenure will be remembered for such noble achievements as ruling the city from the Mayoral Bedroom of his parents’ house, writing a book about his wonderfulness, collecting Superman toys in between city business, and unsuccessfully suing a certain weekly newspaper over its alleged sense of humor.
