Gookin To Announce Mayor Bid?

Above, you'll see the letter sent to news outlets, including Huckleberries, by Councilman Dan Gookin announcing his plans to announce his plans for possible mayoral bid this fall.

Dan Gookin appears to be ready to run for mayor. The second-year city councilman sent a letter to media outlets stating he’s ready to announce his intention to vie for the mayor’s seat come November. The letter didn’t say he will for sure run for mayor, only that he will announce whether he will or not. So, would he call everyone out to the Third Street boat launch at 10 a.m. Friday to announce he’s not running? He told The Press today he didn’t want to “pre-announce his announcement.” But, he added, “I will not be wasting your time. I wouldn’t do that. That would be a joke, but I don’t want to pre-announce this announcement”/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Gookin versus Brannon versus ???, oh my. Thoughts?
