So, it’s the middle of November and the Republican convention is coming up! The convention has normally been on or about the last week of January. I don’t know what the exact date will be but whenever it is, it’s coming! I’ve not heard from anyone other than Jon Way (who didn’t contact me but judging from his website and bumper stickers it seems like he’s running) about their intention to run.
For whatever it’s worth, I would be surprised if there isn’t at least one social/far right/conservative guy/gal who runs. There does appear to be further appetite in some quarters for further budget cuts beyond the 15% we’ve already cut. At bottom, the budget cutting debate revolves more around what kind of place you want to live in.
I have heard rumblings that there is a new Democrat who wants to run and I did meet a guy at a City meeting who was interested in running as an independant. I can’t remember his name and don’t know if he’s still in it. In any event, it looks like it will be a contested election this time around.
