Rettig nominated

Rettig nominated, Senate candidates speak

Not a surprise but now official-Janelle Rettig is the Democratic nominee for supervisor in the January 19 special election. Rettig handily won the vote at tonight's special convention.

Self-starter Mary Jo Meggers put her own name forward but the vote wasn't close-76 to 7.

Of more interest to those outside the People's Republic, all three Democratic senate candidates were on hand. I completely missed Tom Fiegen, but Bob Krause assured me his own speech was excellent.

But the attention was on Roxanne Conlin, making her first big appearance here since joining the race. She turned the trial lawyer thing on its ear with an "I fight for a living" line. (Also of interest-the pro-Conlin buzz among the key Johnson County players after the convention.)

The convention has now morphed into the regular monthly central committee meeting, with little major activity other than prep for the January 23 caucuses.
