IPOPA Dramedy On Ballard Hits Mark; Coming Tomorrow on the Blog
Chris Worden, the man behind the curtain over at the Indy's Painfully Objective Political Analysis Blog, writes this hillarious "dramedy in one scene" about Mayor Greg Ballard and his administration. This is great blogpostery. Is that even a word?
If you are so inclined, read it here.
Coming up on Tuesday:
If you are a Precinct Committeeperson, Vice PC, Ward Chair, or Vice Ward Chair, you have a vote at the Marion County Democratic Party Slating Convention. Earlier this year, the Marion County Democratic Central Committee passed a new slating agreement for candidates that has caused a fair bit of discussion behind the scenes.
Many of you may have received a letter from Prosecutorial candidate Greg Bowes. I did not receive the letter, but Bowes e-mailed me a copy because of some of the material addressed in previous blog posts. I had suggested that Bowes would be "going rogue" and bypassing the slating convention to run against the party choice of either Terry Curry or David Orentlicher. Essentially, he admits that he will, in fact, not be going through slating and instead be taking his case to the voters at the Primary Election.
Tomorrow, I will try to tackle this issue and see if Bowes' argument holds any water across the county. It may take a couple of blog posts to do it, but it's something that's out there in the ether and there are some important developments to talk about.
So, a look at slating...tomorrow on Indy Democrat (play outro music).
Now I feel like a talk show host.
