4th Council District - Names To Ponder for 2011

We have nominations for 4th District
1. Deth Im
2. Mark Forsythe
3. Doug Gamble
4. Ezekiel Amador
5. Kate Corwin? Active in South Moreland Neighborhood Association
6.

If the average Council campaign takes about $150,000.00 - candidates need all the time they can get to raise the money. We want people thinking about this seriously

Deth Im is another non-profit type just like Marcason and Gottstein. Why replace one worthless councilman with another?

Why bother? The Citizens Association hand picks their council candidates. Until somebody busts up that corrupt group and its hold on the Star there's no point in even holding an election.

We should look for a different district map. I think the census will support changing the boundaries.
If all stays the same, well, I agree that Deth Im seems to want to belong. He is way too close to Jim Rowland and Co. We have that now with "freak-out Beth". And, yes, also with Jan. We want change.

Maybe we could find an architect to run! (Totally kidding - I just hated to think about the guy reading your list and weeping silently because nobody wants him to run.)

Amador? The westside whiner and his faithful sidekick Linda Callon? Do not give those two the keys to city hall.

Doug Gamble, isn't he the guy who conned the City into granting his 45th & Main Project TIF funding, then sold the project, made $millions, before the project ever got built. A Windfall profiteer from TIF, just what we need on the Council...Are you people clueless?

Doug Gamble, isn't he the guy that conned the City into giving TIF to his 45th & Main Project, thereby increasing his property's value, afterwhich he sold the property for $millions in windfall profits before he ever turned a shovel. A TIF windfall profiteer, just what we need on the Council...are you guys clueless?

A City-wide coalition for change on the council (The CCCC) should coalesce around some good people to dethrone some of the nasty nine. I love Doug Gamble, and have a lot of respect for Forsythe.

Better than Marcason, I'm sure.

Forsythe is too much of a boyscout. That's why he got eaten alive last time out. Maybe he's learned something and will man up this time around. Mark I know you read these blogs. Don't take this as an insult but lose the Dudley Doright image and kick some ass this time. What say Mark? You going to run? We could use you.

Have your guys followed Kate Corwin? She has been active in South Moreland Neighborhood Association. She is currently working with City Planning on contract to clean up the mess at HEDFC. She has also started her own Environmental Program with DeLaSalle students. She is strong, smart, educated and extremely reasonable. I think she would be an excellent choice.
