Today we learned former City Council member Steve Bradley will venture back into politics. We wish him well. He is a regular follower of city affairs and will ad to the campaign.
Incumbent Councilman Jeff Smith is seeking reelection and is a formidable opponent.
Since there are only 2 seats open, Bradley and Smith are the early Vegas favorites.
There has been a little chatter about other candidates, including a pair of city business persons.
Let all the flowers bloom !
This Saturday, radio talker Joe Brosk and I will travel to Auburn NY in hopes of meeting our political patron saint, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Governor Palin is appearing at a Founders Day Parade and a fundraiser for the Seward House.
It's all in honor of Secretary of State James Seward who in 1867 arranged for the purchase of Alaska from Russia for $7 million. It was called "Seward's Folly" but today we know that without the purchase we would all being seeing Russia from our back porch.
Looking forward to the trip !
