John Cavanaugh is an account executive with Johnson Controls and has been working with Harford County Public Schools for most of those 30+ years. There are two other nominees for king and they are certainly more capable and probably more honorable. But this election has nothing to do with honor. It is about buying votes. I pledge to be the best king money can buy. Since GEEF is a 501c(3) organization, your buying of votes and purchase of this election are even tax deductible. I will be grateful to have your votes. GEEF will be grateful for your contribution. Please vote for me and I promise to pass the buck.
