Your next Mayor?
Mayor Walsh isn't sure he will run again. Now Councilman Pielin aka "Sleepy Gene" was quoted in the Loveland Reporter-Herald saying he is the most qualified person to run.
Citizens who serve with him on committees have witnessed "Sleepy Gene" in action. He is a tireless defender of his largest contributors, the McWhinney companies, and has frightened fellow citizens with strange predictions of the world coming to an end soon.
He arrived at the latest Council meeting (study session) in casual cloths, half-shaven with blood-shot eyes. His appearance caused concern among those attending the meeting and has sparked speculation regarding his readiness to continue serving in public office.
Please post suggestions of anyone you may feel is more qualified to run for Mayor. If the Fair Elections ballot measure passes in November, this will be the last chance for candidates like Sleepy Gene to run with McWhinney money for Council. August 27, is the deadline to file to run - do you know anyone who will?
