Justus back in the race.

Who is the candidate that will be most likely to continue our resurgence DT? It seems that everyone is running on cutting TIFs and redistributing development when we still have so much to do to build our core.

Eric Bunch is switching to 4th in-district to replace Jolie.

Jolie. No doubt.
The only knock for me on her is the airport developer choice, but she seems good. I liked Lucas too but he seems to be turning anti-DT development. Canady is whip smart. It’s probably a three person race. I’m surprised that Northland Republicans don’t have a candidate. The population up there is growing enough to guarantee the second spot if they vote in a block.

Have heard some who supported Canady's council run are upset by her run for mayor. Anyone here similar?

I’ve heard more people confused by her presence in the race. Her name recognition seems low, even by standards of first-term council members. If it’s a three person race, I’d say Justus, Lucas, and Taylor. Out of that three I would take Justus. Lucas has represented the 3rd for an entire term and has never bothered to make contact or visit my neighborhood. I honestly have no idea where he stands on anything. Informal observation is that he seems to like to make minor crises at the council level in order to solve them.

Does anyone have more information on him? The website makes him sound like a meh candidate who won't support downtown.
Would it be possible for Matt Staub to run for this position?

I asked earlier, but I don't think anyone answered. Is Matt Staub going to jump back in to anything (feel free to answer here Matt :P)?
