The Campaign !

….. While waging a political campaign is no picnic for sure, there are many bright spots that occur, and some new endorsements have come in lately that have me smiling ! ( I’ll tell you in a minute)




I have referred back to my watch word, to make sure I take it all in good measure –



noun: humility
  1. a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness.
    …… It’s the people that you represent that are important, and I hope I get the chance soon, the primary coming just next Tuesday, January 16 ……

  1. Watching the debate my take this district election is between you and Steve Glassman.No offense just like in the mayoral race no one is going to get 50% so this goes to March.That being stated if i am right and your race is between you and Glassman i would like to see a debate between you both.Oh my God Tim how could you stand it the other night with this Micheal Rayner.Boy for someone that is not even a district resident(wait) he doesn.t even live in Ft.lau.You would think he would be more active in his own city he resides in.Plus another one on Disability.No job sure he.s up your nose Tim.My take and he s not alone if he can go to these civic meetings for hours at a time than he can get a job.What suckerboy Robert working 12 hrs. A day.Maybe i should file for disability.Alrhough healthier than a horse i could say i hear voices right.Play crazy..That woyld not work cause i run two businesses.You get it.Once we get past next week and your race is between you and Glassman hopefully we can get to the real issues not who is gayier.Who would be better for LBGt concerns etc.You are right Tim you don.t have to be a certain demographic if specific sexual orientation to be an effective commissioner.Good luck to you and Steve.Maybe Maxy Pad will split his campaign monies w/ you and Steve.Right…

  2. My take about the debate the other night that Brittany Wallman hosted i think she took it easy on the mayorak canidates.If ut wasn.t for that felony twenty yrs.ago i would have been sitting up there with them.Anyhow i would have asked Roberts when the former police chief petitioned for 35k to pay the IRs.Roberts and Mckenzie voted yes(hold on) while Seiler,Rogers,and Trantalis stated kick rocks and voted no.I would have asked Roberts his reasoning behind that yes vote.I would have asked Rodstrom how she felt when the city was charged over 200g for a special election she caused.And i would have asked Trantalis while he was on the bd at the Broward house when it was discovered they had an alleged child molester and why Trantalis supported not immediately terminating(hold on)that was when former county comm.Lois Wexler stated. Keep the alleged didler no more funding(thank u).And like magic the man was let go in a NYC minute.Why would u support filth like that.So i would have asked all three amigos these questions.Anyhow that being stated no one is perfect.Anyone of these three would make a fine mayor.Who wins.Whi goes home on tuesday.Its too close.If Charlotte plays her cards right and courts the Black vote she stays if not unfortunately she goes home.No popping the cork Bruce because if Rodstrom goes packing all her votes go to Dean.You lose.Poetic justice Judy Stern.I win by handicap.Gay New Yorkers rejoice.Will see cause no one is getting 50%…

  3. The winners with over 50% on January 16th will.obviously be Bruce Roberts, Tim Smith, n.Robert McKinzie with Walter a bit ahead of Sorenson but no 50% winner.

  4. I disagree.Will see.I say none of them get 50%.Also the primary is a day after a holiday.So you have a three day weekend etc.Residents will forget its voting day.Plus huge factor its going to be cold on Tuesday.Not good for the canidates.In regards to mayoral race one is definitely going home on Tuesday.Now in the general in March will be a.much bigger turn out.On to Tuesday.Although i would prefer Trantalis and Rodstrom doesn.t really matter .Cause residents that vote for Rodstrom will then vote for Trantalis,and vice-versa.Just the same good luck to all..

  5. Like i stated previous this race is between you and Glassman.If i am right Tim and you and Steve go to March i would like to see three debates just you and him.One shortly after the primary.The next one say around Valentine’s and the third just before the March election.Say one hosted by the CBA.The other at city hall hosted by Brittany.And say a third at the Dolphin demos..Boy on another note this Judy Stern.Boy people just love to hate her You know her good.Her name is plastered all over the place.I will tell u one thing beware some of u.Not only does she has more connections than Kissinger.She also has The FBI on speed dial.Is she a snitch or just a concerned citizen.Well, u b the judge…
