MikeK, Edinger Talked Before Vote

Mike Kennedy: “I had talked with Ron about running for Council President two years ago. He said he wanted another term so I didn’t put my name in for it then. After this recently concluded election we talked again and I expressed interest and he told me he had already decided he was not going to run again for Council President. I think McEuen played a small role in his thinking as he expressed it to me, in that Ron’s feeling is that the Council President should do his or her best to be supportive of the Mayor, at least on the “big issues”. On McEuen he wasn’t in agreement with the Mayor, and so it wasn’t a major issue for him to not seek the position again. I respect his position on that, and he voted for me last night. So in short, Ron did not seek the position again, and I was interested. Deanna Goodlander made the motion to nominate me and Woody seconded it, both of which I appreciated.”

Question: Does being council president put a bigger/lesser target on Councilman MikeK's back re: individuals who are hell-bent on beating him in two years?
