They were not a majority by a long shot. Their bank accounts were though. They could afford commercials on TV and radio, a whole lot easier to get elected that way, don't you say? Their money drounded out most local people, and when I served on the board, I found that out. I was a fluke, and was treated as such by me "peers'.
That is why we drive out new rich that make a fuss about how we live now. No damned way I am going to allow this town to go the way of my old one.
Got a problem with tilling at 7AM, then you better leave. Etc.
So then the town wasn't 'overrun' with wealthy, the wealthy were merely using their influence which is their right.. unless you are against the First Amendment. Are you against the First Amendment?
