And Then There Were Three
On today's filing deadline, a third candidate had joined Democrat Janelle Rettig and Republican Lori Cardella on the Jan. 19 special supervisor election ballot.
James Knapp, who applied for the Board vacancy in October but was not interviwed, is running as an independent candidate (the legal term is "nominated by petition") He's currently a registered Republican, but ran for the Board in the 2004 Democratic primary. He finished in eighth place out of eight candidates. That's only remarkable because the seventh place candidate had dropped out of the race.
In any case, this ought to make the candidate forums more interesting. Assuming, that is, that there ARE any more; we hear Lori's been turning down some invitations after a couple poor performances...
