I am supporting Dan Springer in the District 5 runoff because I believe he has the actual governmental experience to make a positive difference for our district.  Having gotten to know him, I know he has the work ethic and the know-how to do the right thing, and he will represent EVERY area of District 5.  I hope that if you live in 5, you will vote for him.  He is also supported by erstwhile candidate Mary Wilder as well.

I attended a gathering for him this evening in Midtown, and Dan took questions and made a great speech about what he sees for the future of the city.  He was patient and listened and gave solid answers to the crowd gathered at the home of Sutton and Kerry Hayes.  Kerry is the one who introduced me to Dan.  Again, we have a short period of time to make a big difference, and I ask for your vote for Dan Springer for District 5!

Now to the other races.......

If you live in 2, Rachel Knox would be a great choice for Cordova and the far eastern parts of the city.  Nothing against Frank Colvett, he is a nice guy, but I believe Rachel has the fire needed for the changes that must be made in the city.

District 3, I lean toward Keith Williams because I believe labor needs a spot at the table, but Patrice Jordan Robinson is a pretty good candidate and is a former MCS Board member.

District 4, if I had a vote, it would go to Jamita Swearengen.

District 7, I have no recommendation, it's your call.

The Council races are important because they will be working with the Mayor-elect Jim Strickland to attack the problems that this city faces.  Please go check out these candidates,get off your butt and VOTE!
