Hi everyone, Marisha here. I am back in the Heights for the next few days packing out and trying to sublease my apartment -- if you know anyone that needs a nice, clean, well-lit one bedroom in the Cassock District, email me right away. Easy access to the I-Line and Armitage Square Park.
Just a couple of polls worth looking at. The first is the Herald-Tribune's mayoral race poll. Sherman has a very slight lead, just outside of the 3% margin of error.
Mayoral Race, Mishipeshu - November 4
Sherman Larson (I) - 34%
Robert Underdahl (D) - 29%
Reeves Sinderman (R) - 27%
Aldermanic Special Race, 3rd Ward (Armitage Heights, Kendall Park, Hanley, Armitage Hill, Little Warsaw, Wihinapa) - December 2
Branch Nickelbine (R) - 52%
Blake Timlin (D) - 27%
Andrea Gilanshah (Green) - 16%
Bronwynn Hyperioum Eisenberg (Wiccan Socialist) - 2%
Dr. Thomas Jefferson Harding (Đang Cong san Viet Nam) - 2%
Looks very good for Sherman, looks very bad for the Democrats here in Armitage Heights. As I'd feared, the Greens, Democrats and Socialist Wiccans are splitting the lefty vote, while the conservatives in Armitage Hill and Wihinapa are united solidly behind Nickelbine.
I don't understand how Dr. Harding even got on the ballot again. He hasn't lived in this neighborhood for two years, he is wanted on felony public peace disruption charges, he is a member of the Viet Cong, and he is 90 years old. Marla and Barry are surely spinning over in their graves.
