I'm leaning toward Scott Taylor. Both Lucas Quinton and Jolie Justus have not been friendly when I met them.

I'm thinking of aiming for someone who isn't on the council today, but I need to learn more before I make a decision.

I'm leaning towards Justus, but I need to learn more about the other candidates. I've read a bit about Taylor and Lucas.

Any good comparison resources/websites out there that break them down in a fair way?

Have Kander or Sly shown any favorites or hinted toward an endorsement?

JUSTUS
Kander said he would endorse Justus if she reentered the race after he dropped out.

Edit: Kander and Kay Barnes have officially endorsed per Jolie's website.

For someone who lives in the northland he could be a strong candidate

Oh, he's very prickly and tries to claim credit for things he didn't do, but he's consistent in doing things for the district he represents.

I guess I’m kind of surprised that there isn’t a Northland candidate in the field. Suburbs make up about half the population. Not that I’m complaining or anything.

Justus has my vote at this point but really like Lucas too.....Jolie passion for improving walkability is my deciding factor.

Someone tell me about Steve Miller. He has the second most cash on hand and talks about building infrastructure including expanding streetcar. Good background of running infrastructure projects which would be good for airport progress. Have never heard of him though.

I hear that some people call him Maurice. Most likely because he speaks of the pompitous of love
