Believe it or not, I made a mistake

Yes, those of you who know me may not believe it, but I did make a mistake. It seems when I was writing my new landing-page for my domain about the city council race, I mistakenly referred to the elite as rich. The two are not interchangeable, but they are often the same around here.

In my opinion, there are people who are in the higher tiers of income that deserve to be there. People like doctors, people who have worked and made their own businesses, people who have gone to college and attained good jobs. These people have worked for what they have in one way or another and have attained a level of success.

Now, in my opinion, there are also the “elite” of the area. These are people who have done little to nothing to succeed, and only have done so by the will of those in power. An example would be the city council approving the city manager to lease a property at below market value, AND giving him over 1/2 of the money paid during the lease once the lease term is up. While such blatant favoritism and nepotism is not always obvious as in that case, it does seem to happen quite often. That is what I refer to when I say elite.
