The Election Season Begins

2009 November 19

The semi-annual game of musical chairs for town council is beginning soon. Each year the date when the first candidates announce their intentions gets earlier and earlier and so we should start seeing some “official” announcements soon.

Having watched (and participated in) this frenzy of local democracy for the past 6 election cycles, this one is shaping up to be epic. We have a mayoral race pitting an entrenched (impacted even) incumbent with 2 or 3 interested parties lining up in the wings. Council seats so far only have a couple of people nibbling at running. As things start to shape up, we’ll have a lot more news and opinion here.

In the meantime, if you have any inside scoop, rumors, or interesting news, please don’t hesitate to pass it along!
