Live Blogging the Mayor’s Debate

Yep, that’s the idea. We’re live blogging the mayor’s debate, for those of you who don’t want to come downtown to the Norm and see thing in person. Or maybe you will be at the event with your iPhone. Either way, join us at 7 p.m., assuming technology rewards our faith in it.

  1. COMMENTARY

    YA SAY THAT FIVE WANT CONTROL (AS MAYOR) TO SAVE THE CITY.

    WOULDA THOUGHT THAT THE TASK WAS DO-ABLE HAD THE PREVIOUS MAYOR, ABLY SUPPORTED BY THE SAME COUNCIL MEMBERS NOW THROWING THEIR HATS IN THE RING, NOT BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF BREMERTON’S SICK CITY SYNDROME WHOSE SYMPTOMS ARE EVIDENT TO THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER ……. SMALL BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN DRIVEN OUT, TAXES AND FEES ARE CHOKING OFF RECOVERY, AND EVEN IF THERE WERE PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO GO – NOWHERE FOR THEM TO PARK LONG ENOUGH FOR EVEN THE QUICKEST MEAL, SHORTEST MOVIE, OR SHOPPING ON THE RUN – AND EVEN THAT AFTER HAVING SUCCESSFULLY RUN THE GAUNTLET OF TRAFFIC CAMERAS WHICH HAVE PROBABLY PICKED THE POCKETS (WITH COUNCIL BACKING) OF 75% OF THE FAMILIES IN THE CITY.

    SEEMS THAT THE PRESENT COUNCIL MEMBERS (WITH PERHAPS TWO EXCEPTIONS – NEITHER OF WHICH IS PREENING FOR THE JOB) HAVE ALWAYS BEEN EAGER TO SUPPORT ANY AND ALL PROPOSALS WHICH WOULD RAKE IN MORE CITIZEN’S MONEY FOR THE SAME COUNCIL TO SPEND ON SUCH NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS AS “ONE HOUR PARKING” SIGNS USED TO REPLACE THE PREVIOUS LONGER TIME LIMIT PERIODS, GOING INTO DE FACTO PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PURVEYOR OF THE NOTORIOUS TRAFFIC INTERSECTION CAMERAS, – THE SAME PEOPLE WHO WILL BE ON THE RECEIVING END THE EXTORTED $30 VEHICLE LICENSE GOUGE.

    NO, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THAT OLD FASHIONED NOTION THAT A COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE WOULD REPRESENT THE PEOPLE IN HIS/HER DISTRICT, THE ONES WHOSE BALLOTS PUT HIM OR HER IN THE JOB – AND NOT JUST TO REVEL IN THE THRILL OF POWER THAT HIS OR HER VOTE APPEARED TO CONFER. (BIG MAN ON THE CAMPUS SYNDROME)

    PUTTER, SPUTTER PATTY LENT – AFTER WONDERING WHERE SHE WENT – SHE FINALLY SURFACED IN THE RACE, FOR THE MAYOR’S JOB. CRAWLING OUT FROM UNDER THE ROCKY REMAINS OF HER COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ADVENTURE WHERE SHE HAD TROUBLE REMEMBERING THAT IT WAS CONSIDERED GOOD FORM TO ACTUALLY VOTE IN SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE SHE REPRESENTED, AS OPPOSED TO CURRYING A PAT ON THE HEAD BY FOLKS WHO POSSIBLE COULD/WOULD ADVANCE HER HOPEFULLY METEORIC RISE IN STATE POLITICS.

    NOPE. GOTTA LOOK FURTHER – TO FIND A CANDIDATE BRIGHT ENOUGH TO SEE WHAT THE REAL PROBLEMS OF THIS TOWN ARE, AND HUMBLE ENOUGH TO REALIZE THAT THE SOLUTION OF THOSE PROBLEMS IS WHAT THE CITIZENS OF THIS TOWN WANT – AND DESERVE, (ALONG WITH BEING ABLE TO KEEP THEIR HEAD FINANCIALLY ABOVE – WITHOUT FEELING THAT ALL THAT “HOPE AND CHANGE” APPLIES ONLY TO THE POLITICIANS.). AND THE NUMBER GAME OF HOW MANY SIGNS EACH CANDIDATE HAS FIELDED – IS NO BETTER THAN A COIN FLIP IN DECIDING WHO TO VOTE FOR.
