Mayoral and City Council Picks '99
Not much to choose between. Both KWB and GB are big government liberals who
would love to take both your tax dollars and your guns and stash them far far
away. A further liabilty for Kay is her board membership on The Mainstream
Coalition. Either she is naive or a serious player on the hysterical left.
Neither answer is satisfying. In Kay's favor: her husband Frank is a
Republican from Newark and a pretty good head. Maybe even a levelling
influence. In George's favor, he won our poll 4 to 1, answers the occasional
question, and is not above drinking a brewski before noon. The liabity: he
drinks Miller High Life.
Clay on a write-in (even though light rail is a seriously bad idea),
and if you need to pick a contender go with George. There is no excusing
Kay's Mainstream membership.
My home district. Jim Rowland. Slam dunk over Charlotte Hill.
He even listens to the show. Nice family. Mary O emceed Charlotte's last
fund raiser. Need I say more?
Chuck Eddy. Slam dunk. One more conservative voice on city
Saundra McFadden Weaver over Troy Nash. Don't even think about
this one. Saundra even showed up for the Ronnies. Sister of Lonnie and
Ronnie, daughter of Pops. Great family. Go, girl!
Becky Nace. Looks good on a billboard. That's about all I
Bonnie Sue Cooper over Robert Hernandez. Met Bonnie Sue at
Republican Medved event in Platte County. Always a good sign. Known Bobby a
long time. Too long. City had him in mind when they installed term limits.
Even the people who were flooded are lobbying against this one.
April 6. YES!
Cam corders have led to increase in child pornography. Should
they outlaw camcorders? Of course not. Concealed weapons have led to
decrease in violent crime. What possibly can be their rationale?
