Its Friday. Head to Head Common Council District 2

Postby Endo Rockstar » Fri Jan 18, 2013 2:51 pm

Its Friday. I want to see a no holds barred, no punches pulled debate on the two canidates for Madison Common Council District 2. Maniaci is moving out so for feel free to lob a few over the fence her way too (although I will miss every correspondence from her ending with her signature tagline: “sent from my iphone.”)

First up we have Bryan Post. Bryan is Maniaci’s pick as a successor. Website.
Next up is Ledell Zellers. Website. Ledell seems to have sprung up due to the Edgewater debate.

My impressions: Post is Maniaci’s boy so that sours me right off the bat. Ledell is Fred Mohs pal with a house up on Mansion Hill –sounds like I’ll have a lot in common.
What do you think, forons?

I think District 2 deserves to have Arthur Kohl-Riggs and Colin Bowden on the ballot. I know that if I lived there, I would be unimpressed by my choices.

Check out Craver's look at the tensions in the race:

I have noticed that El Joyce and El Isthmus have conspicuously not mentioned how I was unable to disclose my finances in time to get on the ballot either and in fact, haven't even reported EL FACTO that I am running a write-in campaign.

I have always been a hero of the downtown set and as the demographics continue to evolve, will only grow MORE AND MORE powerful.

You want to vote for a true underdog? Someone who has been labeled "Cheap"? Someone who's very quality of character is often questioned (critics have charged that I contain dog meat!)? Someone who will make Fred Mohs' skin crawl?

I'm yer...uh...man. I'm yer Taco.

Come on out to the west side. I promise we will treat you right.

BTW -- I very much enjoyed lunch with you today at Laredo's. Filled with shrimp and scallops with a spicy mayo sauce, you were most delicious and affordable.

Aw, man! This endorsement will soon be showing up in campaign ads.

As for the people on the actual ballot, they both are rather flavorless to me.
