My fundraising run-down was given mention in the Tales of Two Cities blog and I thought I would give a quick response. Those numbers were not pretty for challenger candidates. I don't think Larry Carson should be characterizing the numbers that clearly speak for themselves. (Unless he wants to start a blog, at which time he can use all the adjectives he wants). Not every challenger can be bankrolled by wealthy families in other countries. I don't think candidates should be dismissed in light of these early numbers, especially when there is a great deal of discord in the electorate.
So to sum it up, Wordbones, I am hopeful because I think these incumbent council-members can be out-worked. I think the fundraising numbers are going to improve and the electorate is going to start checking out the political new-comers. I may be wrong, but it would be a shame if this election is decided by money alone. A true an unmitigated shame.
