Everything about this city all the way down to the Residential Parking Program is corrupt.

Just a quick question:

Both Dan and Montroll have websites but I haven’t seen anything from Kiss or Kurt.

Do they have websites at all? Trying to begin the process of ranking my preferences.

Voting for Dan as #1 and trying to figure out where to rank the others.

Kevin Curley has a website.

Can you tell us why Dan Smith is your #1 choice? Is it because he has a website? Is so wouldn’t that make Montroll your #2 automatically?

I want a fresh perspective in city government. He’s young and has some real world experience…especially around jobs and the new green economy. Plus, I like how he’s an Independent.

Andy will probably NOT be my second choice. I supported Hinda Miller back in 2006 and I was really disheartened by the fact that he never lifted a finger to help her. Really made me sad. Kurt will probably be my second choice and then Andy. I won’t vote for Kiss. He’s a weak mayor and has no leadership skills. Leopold is really the one running the City.

Can you expound on that? What experience are you referring to? Can Smith claim credit for helping to create jobs?

Leopold is really the one running the City.

You’ve touched on Mayor Kiss’s Achilles’s Heal. I wish he’d have fired Leopold before election season. Now it would just look like a desperation move.

I still like Kiss because I think in terms of the big picture stuff things are tending in the right direction. The new zoning law seems to be more good than bad, and street maintenance has been improving. The agreement Kiss got on UVM’s payments to the city was outstanding.

But I would agree that we’ve seen enough of Mr. Leopold.

I don’t know why you would expect Andy to support Hinda. She wasn’t a good candidate and I’m still grateful to Kevin Curley and Lisa Lindahl for sparing us “Mayor Jogbra.”

Dan Smith has potential, but his candidacy does not remind me of 1981, as I’ve heard others say. That’s seems Orwellian to me. Kiss is the candidate who most resembles Sanders in policy.

I’ll give Dan Smith a look when he talks details – That’s not due to happen for a month or two. I’m so sick of this empty rhetoric of buzzwords like “change”"youth”"fresh” and “energy”.

Mr. Smith was INCREDIBLE on the Charlie & Ernie show – very slick – but then I realized he didn’t say anything about anything. That’s understandable at this point in the campaign, I guess.

I’m also still trying to figure out what GBIC (his “real-world experience”) is all about and what their affiliation is with the Chamber of Commerce. I’m not a huge fan of the Chamber.

Hinda was/is kind of a right-winger, good on Andy if he didn’t support her, though I didn’t notice that.
