EVER HEARD OF CHICKEN SOUP CUB CANDIDATE?….

Dear Readers …just when you think it cannot get any stranger in this LBTS 2012 Commission race for seat 3 …it does!… Candidate Edmund Malkoon was a no-show tonight at the first head-to-head meeting set up for him and his opponent Mark Brown at the UOT-PAC …Before the meeting though a call went out from the Town Manager to at least one Commissioner that Malkoon asked that the scheduled Wed. night LOWV Meet The Candidate Forum be changed due to illness…WHOAAAA…. Are you kidding me!… Never have I heard of a candidate asking 48 hours ahead of time for something to be scratched in anticipation of still being sick!…So what’s wrong with Candidate Cub Malkoon anyway you may be asking?… The word from a few attending the UOT meeting is he has a fever of 102.5!…He sent a proxy with a letter which was rather feisty we hear from someone so ill and in need of a respite during the countdown of days leading up to the Jan. 31st election stating he had a 102.5 fever ad nauseum…pun intended ….and asking that the Wed. night forum be changed due to being under the weather!… This is a new low in my book…I recall VM Dodd showing up at meetings shortly after a hip replacement …I recall not too long ago Comm. Sasser was on the dais throughout a full meeting quite ill after being checked out by AMR… Same goes for former Comm. Chuck Clark as I recall….So to ask for the forum to be changed for a fever that can easily be taken care of within the 48 hours leading up to this event is just another reason why Cub Candidate Edmund Malkoon is not qualified to be a commissioner!… Ask yourself when was the last time you called in sick and missed an important¬† scheduled meeting? … How long would you employ someone who calls in sick 48 hours ahead of time?…

The Town and the LOWV must carry on with this scheduled forum and allow Candidate Mark Brown this venue to make his opening and closing remarks as well as to answer the questions voters have already sent in for the candidates to respond to…To quash this event and/or move it for a feverish cub is beyond comprehension!…

Mama Bear or the Snicker snicker man or Mensa Meow Meow needs to give their Cub Candidate Malkoon a Z-Pak and a load of chicken soup…wipe his nose …tie his shoes and get him to the LOWV Meet The Candidate Forum Wed. night as planned…If Malkoon is indeed a no-show or the Town reschedules…then voters once more need to tell this Cub he’ll have plenty of time to hibernate after Jan. 31st!

more to come….
