I went to the final mayoral debate tonight because I was writing a campaign wrap-up.
They both look tired out ... and wow, poor James Shanley was out of his element. In this case, that is.
I guess it all boils down to how you feel about funding for the schools and where the money will come from, given that the state is not being very helpful in this regard.
Shanley wants paid parking and Holaday wants grants and "efficiencies." I hate that word, along with "transparency."
Anyway, we're down to the final days - and frankly, I don't see much passion for either person. There's not even that many campaign signs.
Apathy is not good.
I proposed to Holaday that the infamous "Khaki Crowd" (so dubbed by, I believe, Bubba) was more for Shanley and the people who think things like the Rail Trail, although quite nice, are a waste of money given the condition of the city's infrastructure and thus prefer her.
She did not agree because, as she correctly pointed out, that money was earmarked for the Rail Trail and could not be spent on anything else. But there was the CPA money.
Oh, well ... So much for another of my wonderful theories ...
