Teddy Varndell Reacts to the Forum
I was underwhelmed. None of the three opponents in 32 had a specific instance of wrong doing, malfeasance, or dog kicking to lay at Waguespack's feet. They couldn't even pull something juicy from the D-2's.
The best Mr. Gorman could muster were accusations of Scott's reaching for higher office, which as John "I've never met a public office I won't campaign for" Fritchey's protege, seemed a bit silly.
Pavlik, the Mell/machine candidate, was enthusiastic about potholes, constituent services and "keeping people in their homes" (a curfew?), all noble causes I guess, but a platform? Where's the beef?
And then there was Lynch, a remnant vestige of the Matlak era who quite frankly was a tad creepy in a zombie sort of way. The walking dead, lucky to carry the 3rd precinct.
If I was Scott I wouldn't spend a nickel until after Feb 22nd, his eventual re-election a forgone conclusion.
