Busy Week!

Lots of things going on this week. I've spent a lot of time helping Jim Stafford with his new discussion board. You can check it out by clicking here.

There are many improvements and improved moderation of the comments. Stop by and become a registered member.

We also had a City Commission meeting on Tuesday night. The Commission directed the City Attorney to prepare ordinances that would change the City Charter. Specifically, that the terms of Commissioners and Mayor be extended from two (2) to three (3) years and that the provision for run-off elections be repealed. Currently, if a candidate does not get more than 50% of the votes in the General Election, the two recipients of the highest number of votes face a run-off two weeks after the General Election.

Besides that item, there are many that are building up in a line ready for posts on this blog. Look for more in-depth analysis on the above charter amendments, some things brewing on the redevelopment front and a special feature from one of my side trips while in Indiana - among other things.

Here are some pictures from my birthday party at the Mad Hatter last night. I am sure that you will see some familiar faces. Thanks for dropping by! More later!
