Political season sure does bring out some of the most unique situations.

We saw that a few weeks ago when Commissioner James Calkins did a reversal so large regarding Juana’s Pagodas and Sailor’s Grill that it should’ve been sponsored by ServPro. To reference the restoration company, it was almost like “it never even happened.”
