Rep. Atkins Sets Politics Aside, Urges Support for Opponent's Band

Setting politics aside, State Rep. Joe Atkins seeks votes for his opponent's band in the "Battle of the Bands" Championship.

A lot of political candidates think you have to bash your opponent to win. 

Not me. 

In fact, the whole point of this column is to show my support for my opponent, Paul Tuschy, and for his band, in the “Battle of the Bands” Championship at Dean’s Tavern that takes place tonight.

If you like hard rock, I think you will like Paul’s band, Smiling Politely. 

You can check out videos and find out more about Smiling Politely at www.youtube.com/sptvtube or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/smilingpolitelyband. Paul is great on the drums.  

Good luck tonight, Paul!

Congrats to Paul Tuschy on making it to the "Battle of the Bands" Finals last night. While he and his band, Smiling Politely, didn't pull off the win, people who know music agree they put on a terrific performance.
