Here’s an update (kind of) on a couple of items that we’d been discussing:
- I haven’t written more about pit bulls because I’ve been waiting to get some reliable statistics. Councilor Haller let me know that she still hasn’t received dog bite statistics (along with other crime statistics) but when she gets them, I’ll put together another post on pits.
- If you’re a member of a third party and want to serve on the Election Commission, I’ve got good news for you! The fifth member of the Election Commission must not be registered as a Democrat or a Republican. The wording has been amended in the online advertisement from the previously advertised “unenrolled.”
Speaking of the latter, I was going into City Hall the other day around noon, and a very nice young lady (goodness I feel old) asked me if I could sign Jim McGovern’s papers. I explained that I wasn’t a Democrat.
“But if you’re not enrolled, you can still sign,” she said.
“Well, actually, I’m enrolled as a [the party I’ve been registered for since I registered on my 18th birthday],” I said, apologetically.
I was going to try to console her by telling her I usually vote Green, though, but I don’t think that would have been much of a consolation.
Other bloggy things I need to follow up on:
- The deplorable state of the swings at Elm Park
- The proposed closure of significant parts of Swan Ave
My usual method of getting my way in my real work (i.e., showing cleavage and hitting on the people in charge) doesn’t have great results in the city government. Major problem. So I’ll have to rely on my other, more limited, powers of persuasion.
