Candidates making moves

It was cool to see city councillors after last night's meeting - it's Tuesday now - outside City Hall, signing each other's nomination papers.

I asked At-large Councillor Barry Connell if it was hard to get the 50 necessary signatures and he said not really, but it was a lot of work.

Being a sitting councillor is obviously a boost since you should already know a bunch of people to solicit.

I ran into Ari Herzog at the RiverFest thingie on Saturday, and he was clutching his clipboard with his nomination papers, as he was last night.

The only other city official I saw there was Marshal Howard (police chief) but I don't think he was on duty.

So as not to appear to be giving a 'thumbs up' to Ari, here are other candidates with websites that are either under construction or up and running:

Donna Holaday
Kathleen O'Connor Ives
James Shanley

Of course, Ed Cameron already has his blog; and most of them are now on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I'll be putting this information in the sidebar once everything is firmed up (as in, when any of these people become official candidates).
