Let's start the rampant, mindless speculation NOW!
OK, so who's in the race to replace Scott McCormick for Super District 9 councilor?
We're open to suggestion here, but I have names in mind, and mind you NO ONE HAS TOLD ME ANYTHING, these are just MY thoughts on potential candidates:
Joe Saino and/or Lester Lit
Kent Conrad or some other Gooper lawyer/developer type
All of whom, of course, lost SD9 races last year; that's no reason to think they might not run for an open seat.
I, however, would like to propose the name of someone else entirely, someone who may be more conservative than I am but I would trust to make the best possible decisions, someone who tolerates no bullshit.
I speak, of course, of the founder of JoeCitizens.com himself, Mr. Tom Guleff.
Yes, I understand that he's primarily known for his satirical and sharp looks at Memphis politics, but he would be a devout public servant and I would support him for this office. No, Tom, I'm not kidding, you need to think about this, and if he agrees, SD9 voters, you need to get behind him, because he would be a virulent watchdog of our tax dollars without throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
Think about it, Tom.
