I support this vision for democracy. Where does Hales stand on taking money from corporations?
I camped out Sunday night in solidarity, and I don't want to discourage Cameron. I am having second thoughts however about City Hall and their willingness to serve the underserved. I want Cameron to declare victory and repair his body.
The "other" Todd, St. John... Eileen's un-funny energizer bunny, Todd Barnhart.
P.S. I see what you did there, Merc, on your Enemies List. AARP!
"Hales & Smith made a practice of looking down on the outsider candidates"
Todd, please shut up.
Michael, I reject your whole premise. "Can you defend your candidate's acceptance of the police union endorsement?"
It's a bullshit question, like "Have you stopped beating your wife lately?"
I frankly didn't expect Jefferson Smith to be backed by the police union. Of the 3 media spotlighted candidates, Hales and Brady are the ones who would have had the police sweep the parks of protesters early on. Smith is on record as having the back of OccupyPDX. Should grass roots win over Brady's millionaire Miracle-Gro campaign, we'll have elected the one candidate who will be able to lead the police bureau, as opposed to fighting it. That doesn't sound like a sound reason to withdraw your support. But like I noted before, you're not much of a fan of any of the 3 leading candidates.
Vote for Cameron.
Mikey, unless you've dropped your support for Chris Rich, then like the Merc, you're a "none of the above" guy. One thing impresses me about both your soft endorsement of Hales and that of Team Mercury. Your reasons for not supporting Jefferson Smith for Mayor don't sway me.
Among the Mercury staff, some were turned off by Jefferson's personality. I think the big guy can be overbearing too. Grizzly at times... You say you lost confidence with Jeff because he didn't take your advice and reject the police union endorsement. Boo hoo.
I see TeamJ also copied the slogan "for mayor."
