Some Mayor Update Stuff

The Bexley Democratic ward captains are apparently meeting tonight to decide on an endorsement among the three Bexley mayoral candidates who are seeking it: Minckler, Jones, and Harvey. I tried to wrangle an invite, but the meeting is an understandably private affair. On Wednesday, the Franklin County Dems* will be announcing endorsements for municipal races throughout the county. I'm not expecting high drama, but I am going to try to be there.

Speaking of Dem #3, Bill Harvey, I received a request (well, I'll take it as a request... I certainly understand the tone given the context, and there was a mix-up with some prior email, but even bloggers prefer to be asked politely. ahem.) to put up the link to the Harvey for Mayor Website, so I will do so shortly. In the meantime, every candidate seems to say that they plan to knock on every door in Bexley. Well, the race to be the first to knock on bonobo's door is over, and the winner is: John Brennan. Matt Lampke may have multiple rounds of mailings, Bill Minckler may have had more face time, and the younger candidates will probably end up with more free media, but Brennan has the teenage girls and the golden-shoe-leather award.

*I've made some snide comments about the FCDP website in the past, and even made some pretty negative inferences based upon the lack of contact/outreach I've perceived. They've got a new website, and a new executive director. Things are looking up. Here's hoping for a county party worthy of its supporters.
