Mayoral Election in Less Than 2 Weeks!

Did anyone out there realize that we vote for Orlando Mayor in about 9 days? I sure didn’t! The signs are pretty sparse and all this primary business for President has pretty much overshadowed it in local media. It’s the same suspects, Dyer vs. Mulvaney, this time around. I like Mulvaney, if only because Dyer just won’t admit we have a crime problem. He’s says the violent crime slowed at the end of 2007 as evidence of his progress. Greeeeat. The murders slowed down a bit at the end of the year. They sure are off to bang again in 2008 though. How about, I don’t know, a plan or something?

While I do admit, I do enjoy things like BBQ and Blues, I still don’t see a Light Up Orlando on the calendar, and unless you have the foresight to actually return to us our traditions, it’s just token parties that show you have no idea what this city used to be like, where we came from, and where we need to return.

Get out and vote guys, if you don’t like Dyer be sure to not let him just sneak in another term merely because nobody knew he was up again.

    I’m really getting tired of elections where it comes down to who do you hate least rather than who do you like more.

    I’m also bummed this year’s BBQ fest is Feb 2, the same night as the start of Universal’s Mardi Gras. :(

    But I do agree we need more city unifying events.

    No doubt, every election I think to myself, how easy it would be for someone to win who had the guts to tell it like it is and be just honest. However, I suppose, anybody with the intelligence and conviction to do that has more productive things to do with their lives than be a politician.
