gab already posted in this thread - 2 OTHER THREADS at OTHER TIMES that you mentioned your Dad.
I checked those threads. By the numbers, two is not bad, but they were pretty smarmy, which can make them noisome.
Personally, I thought it was kind of a dick move to cover the grounds of the debate with signage; it kind of impugns the reputation of the venue as neutral ground for the evening. But it's a first-time candidate thing; last election, Wolfe spelled out his name in signs...
I dunno... i think its a wasted vote... my father is going to win.
Hubris is a major risk. Thinking one can just coast through into power has cost many candidates many elections.
I bet they will do nothing for this city... all of them are just in for the pay check.... that is my guess.
It's not actually that much money. If I remember it right, mayor makes $80k, which is less than most of the department heads, some of the cops and some of the firefighters. Councillor pays something like $26k, which would work out to $12.50/hr full time. Most councillors have other jobs on the site. Off the top of my head, on council right now there's a high school teacher, a principal, an accountant, a hairdresser, a bureaucrat, and a chiropractor if I'm remembering all this right.
I want to vote but I don't want to vote blind.
tbnewswatch has had some decent coverage, netnewsledger has had a couple articles, and the CJ usually does a couple pages of per-candidate coverage closer to the election day.
I have absolutely no information on the school board thing; I've been out of school for a long time and don't have kids, so am way out of date on any issues. Does anyone know if I can leave that section blank without spoiling my whole ballot?
