K-Mama: Way To Go, Mike Kennedy

Kendramama: I personally was just so happy to see MikeK's headline on the Press the other morning- and for once, in the article it seems they got at least the majority of the facts right!- and to be able to rejoice for him that it seems all this happy crappy is hopefully over and he can go back to what he's best at. That'd be A) serving as a very competent City Councilman (is that even supposed to be in caps? if not oh well); and, B) running Intermax, which (free plug, Mike!) is the best darn internet provider I've ever had and, except for the insanely expensive dish deposit/ installation fee ; -) , is actually quite cheap for being lightning fast and super reliable.

Question: In the drop-down part, Kendramama says that Mike Kennedy was the more sympathetic figure in the contested election -- not Jim Brannon. Do you agree?

So, way to go, MikeK! I sincerely hope this is the end of it, and Hizzoner Hosack doesn't get reversed. You've had to deal with enough as it is. But I sure bet you're up in the polls! or whatever passes for Cd'A's polling system- after all, wasn't it a politician who said, “There is no such thing as *bad* publicity…”
Besides, in all this, everyone I know at least sees you as the straight arrow just trying to defend yourself against a sore loser. You're the sympathetic figure, not him.
