This is best for everyone. Now, David and Kenny need to get out of this race so that Jo has a shot. I like David and Kenny, but I think Jo is running the best campaign. But it will still be tough for Jo, though, even if that happens. I think its TenHaken’s to lose.

Probably what really needs to happen is the Dems and Entenman need to get together – and I don’t care how revolting that may sound, but it needs to happen – else we will work to create an other Thune with the election of Tenhaken as our next mayor.

When it comes to this race, the Dems don’t have a plan, rather they have a couple of candidates with the elite in the Party backing a policy to promote an agenda and a particular candidate over taking the more realistic defensive position of working to prevent something from happening versus hoping that something else will happen.

I don’t care how many Hakens are running. He and his army will be decimated by Entenman.

This is good news.

Now, let’s hope that someone decides to run against Kiley in the Southeast District. This guy was not qualified to run for the Council four years ago and nothing much has changed.

Do not underestimate Jolene. I say Jo in a runoff with either entenmam or tenakin.

Nick has a real chance. Anyone who has been paying attention to her actions regarding legacy, and the fact most everybody who picks up a golf club will vote against her makes the odds not good for her.

anon – you should talk to some of Kiley’s former students. Let’s just say he wasn’t qualified for that job either.
