Go check out what Max Powers is doing right now. He busts a Susie Soldier in a big fat lie and makes Bob Moore look like an ass.
Judge Escobar is playing the game where she's going to still be judge, but has resigned. A voter could look at the situation as her doing what she needs to be able to run for another office while not giving up the office she was supposed to leave. Voters won't count it as quitting until she stops showing up to meetings. The danger is that a controversy could pop while she's still sitting there and it would be on her report card. If I were her, I'd get somebody in so she can get out as fast as possible. Let them be saddled with any potential drama.
Dori is making a mistake by following Escobar's pep rally with one of her own. A block walking party would be a much better way to launch. At least you are attempting to get new voters on day one. A pep rally is your friends and family eating and drinking your campaign dollars away. If Dori is going to spend the campaign just trying to do whatever Vero does, it's going to end badly for her.
I can't believe they are going forward with the arena given the restrictions. I'm a little worried common sense hasn't prevailed here. The voters wanted an arena, but they don't need it. You've had this discussion with your children a thousand times. Maybe it's time you have one with your city council member.
County tax bill stayed flat... Hospital didn't. Just remember how much the city provides and how little the county helps out. That's why one bill is going up and the other not.
