It's time for Bill Horn to go. North County voters, you've kept the electricity flowing into Horn's House of Horrors for far too long.

He is the quintessential fat-cat politician, minus the cigar. To help you feel better about doing the right thing, we've loaded this issue with everything you need to know about Horn, plus a little something about the guy who should be the next District 5 supervisor.
