And Then There Were 6?

More and more names are crowding the list of peeps who want Archie Brooks' job. I count at least 5. I have a lead on a 6th, but I'm still working to get a hold of her.

Here's my list so far...

Som Baccam--She used to serve on the DSM schoool board. She worked behind-the-scenes to try to get Brooks kicked off the council. (41 years old)

Jo Anne Corigliano--She lost to Brooks in 1999. She works at Home Depot and helped start the South Side Revitalization Partnership. (62 years old)

Joe Henry--Helped Frank Cownie become mayor. He's a real estate agent. (49 years old)

Brian Meyer--He's the youngest of the bunch at 33. He's an asst. A.G. and is a DSM planning and zoning commish.

Becky Morelock--She's been a neighborhood activist for years. (59 years old)

~Absolutely Not (Inside Circle and kick backs are the norm)~

~Absolutely Not (More attorneys and corrupt government officals? Heck no)~

~An activitist is 1000% better than any attorney)~

I like it when people point out these interesting attributes. It helps bring to light what their real motivations are. Real Estate Agent or Lawyer = Self Serving, Activist or regular person = Sick of Current Operations.

So, I know which side I am leaning to. The smart one.
