Thanks for the head's up. I will now make sure to bitch, whine, pout, cry, stomp and do everything I can to annoy you for the next four years.

Re: Golden Out, Konkel In?

If I had to guess, I'd say she's trying to decide whether to run for her old seat and have a good chance of winning, or run for mayor and almost certainly lose.

But I don't want to hear any whining over the next four years from Madison's disgruntled left if they don't put up a challenge, be it Brenda Konkel or someone else.

Re: Golden Out, Konkel In?

Falk vacating the her office and creating a rare election cycle with both county executive and mayor on the ballot sucked all the air out of any possibility of a competitive mayors race. All re$ources were suddenly spun from any possibility of a contested mayors race into jockeying for political influence into the exec race. So we have a healthy field of qualified candidates vying for county executive and Mayor Dave waltzing towards re-election against a field of maybe one b-list candidate and several d-list dreamers. Even if there were viable a-list candidates for mayor they're smart enough to know that all the money is going to be funneled into the exec race, so all the real competitors have decided to sit this one out. Or in Zach Brandon's case, run for county executive instead.

Re: Golden Out, Konkel In?

1.) To the poster above, Ed Bundy never said "No, Peg" during the entire run of Married with Children. Al Bundy, on the other hand said it frequently. You may have been thinking of Ted Bundy, who would have been more likely to say things like "Why yes, that is my VW " and "don't mind that crowbar in the back seat".

2.) Mayor Dave does seem a little petty and vindictive, which would make him a pain to interact with. However, since 98% of the city does not have to interact with him personally, I suspect he will win pretty easily.

Re: Golden Out, Konkel In?

I don't know Brenda Konkel outside of reading "This Side of Town," but based on the issues she routinely raises there, I can't see how she'd get any traction against Mayor Dave. She objects to his style of management, she objects to meetings not being posted in a way that she would prefer (despite the fact that I think the postings always occur within the letter, if not the spirit, of the law), she objects to the process by which the Edgewater deal is taking place (making her and Fred Mohs into rather odd bedfellows), and she detests Bridget Maniaci with every fiber of her being, which is neither ...
