In the run-up to this year’s Presidential election, Rob Connaire, aka Politicabbie, has found a way to take politics back to the people: Take a ride in his Main Line taxi, and he’ll offer you the chance to express your political views, on camera. As he says, “The average bear knows a lot more than politicians give them credit for. Neither my customers nor I have a $10,000 check in our hand, but if we band together a series of conversations, who knows what we could do?” The Citizen will publish Politicab’s videos, which will also be uploaded to YouTube. Maybe our electeds will take heed.
In this episode, Connaire talks to Kim Messick, a waitress and a single mom who wishes she were better informed and had better choices—but knows Clinton is the right vote on November 8th.
“I’m usually a Democrat, but would vote for whomever is right and fair in my eyes,” she says. “Trump, he’s just dirty. [Hillary Clinton] seems a little sketchy. But I think she’d probably be the right person to get things done of the two.”
