Paris's Political Scene

Posted at every intersection and most spaces in between, political candidate signs were impossible to miss during our stay last week in Paris, Tenn. While most candidates list their name, sought-after office, and perhaps some character qualities--leadership, experience--on their signs, Ms. Martin decided thanking the voters would be the best use of her space.

Your vote and support
is greatly appreciated.
Her inattention to grammar and passive-voice usage are greatly appreciated here at Morgan Adventures. While passive voice is not technically incorrect, most always the active voice is the better way to write. However, using a singular verb ("is") with a plural subject (vote and support) is always wrong.
