I've refrained mostly from writing on this subject before. I think it is time to bring it out as warm up for the election this year. Keep in mind that only Hosterman, Sullivan, and McGovern's seats are at stake for the election. Let's try to stick to opinion based upon facts and actions instead of unverified rumors about these people.
Matt Sullivan - Tends to bend an ear towards whoever can shout the loudest. Believes that is a sign of not including everyone in "the process" and tries to find a way to placate everyone. It is certainly a leadership style. Does it work? I think the jury is still out on that.
Jerry Thorne - Tends to stick to the relevant and substantive facts on issues. Speaks quite eloquently.
Jennifer Hosterman - Seems to be practicing for higher office. Has gotten quite good at non-committed politician-speak.
Cindy McGovern - Tends to fixate on a single issue and will vote accordingly, even if the Fire Captain whose job it is to deal with the problem will tell her otherwise.
Cheryl Cook-Kallio - Places value upon the principles embedded in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (considering she teaches the stuff). Appears to vote accordingly.
