Here’s The Scoop … The CIC Digging Deep For Candidate From District 1 …And Then There Were 5 On Day 5 … LBTS 2010 Municipal Election …

WHO?…….

Dear Readers….I’ll preface this by saying I am still in Chicago and without my old CIC records…But from a few phone calls and a quick Google ….Here goes….

It sure looks like the CIC had to dig deep to find a candidate from the north to run for commission for District 1 …. Marjorie Evans (I believe) is the wife of former CIC Secretary Geoffrey Evans…He sat on the CIC Board when this writer was Vice Chair in 2007-2008…I can tell you that I would not know Mrs. Evans if she was standing in front of me…she was not a participant in any political or volunteer event I was involved in. A call to fellow board members in the CIC provided the same response…they would not know her if I saw her on the street…and she certainly has not stood at the podium over the last year… She has not written anything in the last year…and I cannot recall her name on any list of volunteers in the last year…

So when the CIC  endorses her in 2 days the Mc-Furth Roberts -CIC will now have lost one of their loudest poison arrows against Candidate Scot Sasser and Candidate Chris Vincent!…

The CIC-Mc-Furth “Gang” and the BTSTimes have actively gone after the two candidates asking where have they been and what have they done in town by way of volunteering and participating until now when they have chosen to run for office?…

Well, Scot Sasser and Chris Vincent have been at the commission meetings and fully engaged for more than a year now…They have been walking door to door in neighborhoods and going to all the Town sponsored events…

Attending Town events was something they did long before they decided to get involved politically, they were involved as residents and fathers participating their children in all this Town has to offer…….

With Mrs. Evans as a candidate who will have to make herself known to the voters  in 8 weeks time…those accusations are now moot!…

And while we’re on this point of volunteerism and participation…If we are to take her fellow CIC- endorsed (no doubt) Candidate for District 2…Commissioner Jim (he’s not a nice guy and not a gentleman) Silverstone at his word…he does not even want Mrs. Evan’s vote…because she has not volunteered or participated in anything in town! …Commissioner Jim Silverstone  stated emphatically on the dais  that was a requirement  for voters to vote for him in 2010!…OOPS!…
