Two Days to Go

Two days to go before the election.

Let's keep it simple:

For Mayor:  Michelle Distler

Ward I Councilmember:  Ben Terrill

Ward II Councilmember:  Eric Jenkins

Ward IV Councilmember:  Write in my name, your name, the name of any resident of Ward IV as a statement to Mickey Sandifer


I have been asked why the sudden move for a write-in campaign against Mickey Sandifer.  Scroll down (posted 3/19/15) and you'll see my comments about the recent NLC conference in Washington DC.  Apparently the city manager thought the highlight was sitting seven rows back to hear Obama.  When challenged about this, by email, Mickey Sandifer replied:

"I would say a highlight was when we received some very good information about the quiet zones in western Shawnee from the Senators and it appeared that they were going to help up us try to achieve that goal.  And their were many other ideas of cost saving things that I was able to listen to from other Cities around the country."

When asked to be more specific about the cost savings ideas, he wanted to talk about it.  He was asked to put that info in writing.  He wouldn't.  Typical.  By talking he could deny that he said certain things or that the listener misunderstood.  By putting the items in writing he could be held accountable.  He was also asked to provide that info before he had time to have someone else write it for him.

I realize a write-in won't stop him from getting reelected, as he is running unopposed.  But, whatever number of people do write-in, it might make a statement.

WARNING!!!!!! The City Manager of Shawnee has determined that local bloggers post items that may contain bad or misinformation. Please read these posts with care and determine for yourself whether the information is valid.
