Well, McCulloh has filed for the Commission. From spending City money to spending County money to spending City money. This is reminiscnet of the movie “Groundhog Day”!!!
How many more will announce? How many candidates file before we are required to have a primary election? If the current cast of characters is it, we will have Jankovich, McCulloh, and Boyd elected. The “there are no bad dogs, just bad dog owners” guy won’t stand a chance. With those three, McCulloh would simply displace Sherow as the lone/lonely liberal. We would have three Tea Party patrons (Matta, Butler, and Boyd), one commons sense commissioner (Jankovich) and McCulloh. If Pepperd runs again, we most likely will see deja vu of the current commission, with the only change being McCulloh for Sherow. The political bent would remain extremely socially conservative.
If another liberal runs, in an attempt to seat two on the Commission, could they garner the votes to overcome the conservative faction who want Boyd? It would be interesting to see a totally split commission, with Jankovich being the swing vote. Rich has shown, IMHO, a real effort to put politics aside and consider community first. Hmm… Matta/Butler vs McCulloh/???, with Jankovich being “The Decider”. Could make for some very interesting commission meetings.
